ForeFront Power is a solar and energy storage project developer based out of San Francisco, CA with satellite offices in New York, Colorado, and Mexico. ForeFront was established in January 2017, after the successful acquisition of SunEdison’s Commercial and Industrial division by Mitsui & Co. The ForeFront Power team has more than 50 employees and over 800 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity experience across over 1,000 behind-the-meter, wholesale, and community solar projects and has raised more than $3 billion in project financing.
ForeFront Power strives to be a unique force in the renewable energy industry, focusing on ensuring that each project has the right partnerships to enable a seamless and enjoyable process for customers. Mitsui is a very engaged as a valuable parent company, committing more than $200 million to project financing in 2019 and 2020 alone. This commitment, and ForeFront Power’s own balance sheet enables the company to self-fund the development of projects, streamlining the development process and eliminating the barrier that financing can present.
ForeFront Power partners with best-in-class providers of energy storage equipment and software optimization services in order to provide fully integrated solar PV plus battery storage solutions. The team has over 7 MWh of energy storage systems in development and construction that are expected to become operational in 2019. ForeFront’s strong energy storage supplier relationships, coupled with in-depth expertise in developing clean-energy projects, ensure that customers receive optimal savings in a variety of applications.
ForeFront Power puts customers first. They exercise this commitment by designing projects that deliver savings to customers as promised, exceeding initial energy estimates while understanding and accommodating customers’ specific needs. It is this flexibility that gives ForeFront Power the ability to successfully deploy projects ranging from rooftop solar to larger wholesale and community solar projects.
According to ForeFront Power, “We see great value in deploying solar and energy storage systems across New York, and with the support of NY-BEST, we are well positioned to take advantage of the latest initiatives and incentives for customers in the State.”
