From advisory services to program management to marketing: 3Degrees offers both a la carte and turnkey Community Solar solutions
3Degrees, which has offered Community Solar marketing and advisory services since 2012, has recently expanded its offerings to include additional a la carte as well as turnkey program management and development services. These offerings help clients address issues such as product design, project sizing and location, ownership, customer acquisition and retention, and billing and risk mitigation.
“Rather than offering a one-size-fits-all approach, 3Degrees works with each client to provide custom services that specifically meet their needs,” says Dan Kalafatas, CEO. “For some, that may be a full end-to-end solution. But we have found that many utilities appreciate the ability to tap into our expertise for specific challenges they may be having.”
While Community Solar is a hot topic and is starting to experience significant growth, many utilities are unsure of how to get started or how to best manage and grow their program. The Community Solar offerings of 3Degrees are designed to help utilities investigate options and opportunities enabling a utility to design a program with confidence. Then, once an approach has been selected, 3Degrees helps clients turn that plan into a reality.
“We see community solar as a logical extension of utility renewable energy programs,” said Adam Capage, Vice President of Utility Partnerships at 3Degrees. “Our clients come to us for help in building and launching programs that provide their customers additional options at low cost and risk.”
