WE ARE SWINERTON RENEWABLE ENERGY
Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE) provides a full array of solar photovoltaic (PV) services, including; engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, operations and maintenance (SOLV), project feasibility analysis, energy performance analysis, portfolio monitoring solutions, and long term performance guarantees.
Swinerton’s entry into the renewable energy sector was spurred by a demand for more energy efficient buildings from our existing clientele. In 2000, we began installing small commercial PV systems throughout California, including a rooftop installation at our IT hub in Concord.
In 2008, we formed Swinerton Renewable Energy, a division of Swinerton Builders. We did so in anticipation of rapid growth in the PV market following the federal ITC (Investment Tax Credit) extension. Our initial target market was behind-the-meter solar for existing clients, including 15 PV installations for Kaiser Permanente in Northern and Southern California.
As the solar sector matured, however, SRE quickly pivoted towards utility-scale opportunities. Today we deliver EPC and SOLV services for both utility and commercial/industrial clients. Having completed over 1 GW of PV jobs, SRE enjoys robust procurement leverage across the supply chain. As a result, our plants are best-in-class and highly cost competitive. We also offer SOLV services for projects built by other EPC contractors. Our SOLV team currently manages over 3.25 GW of PV plants throughout North America.
SRE’s frontline engineering approach is informed by real-time analysis of plant performance on over 100 utility-scale installations. Insight gained from this robust data set enables us to optimally balance first-cost, life cycle maintenance, and energy yield objectives. From our perspective, these services are vital to long term, comprehensive asset optimization for our clients.
As a testament to our proven performance, we have earned repeat business with over 90% of our solar clientele.
