Solar Services for State Governments

State-based initiatives help to further renewable energy technologies on a local level while having a grassroots role in the successful growth and modernization of national energy policy. ANTARES’ extensive work in helping clients design, deploy, operate, and evaluate solar energy programs and policies is anchored in our deployment and implementation experience. Our past clients have ranged from government agencies planning billion-dollar incentive and regulatory programs to individual companies and building owners starting up “greening“ initiatives for their employees and customers.

We have previously developed a roadmap for photovoltaic technology that supported research, development, and national policy changes (including a long-term extension of solar tax credits and funding of DOE’s Solar America Initiative). We have provided Federal guidance for interpreting and implementing renewable energy requirements for the Federal Energy Management Program. And we’ve also assisted the Building Technologies and Solar Programs with comprehensive technical peer reviews. Our staff is experienced in policy analysis, public administration, program evaluation and outreach, and strategic and budget planning, and we can deliver the combination of real-world experience and programmatic expertise that program managers need.

Feasibility Studies and Installations

ANTARES understands that financial upkeep responsibilities can become a daunting but necessary line item on annual budgets. Through site assessments and feasibility studies, we can help you realize the full potential of spaces like closed public landfills and contaminated lands, seizing the financial opportunities of turning brownfields into energy producers. ANTARES’ corporate solar experience includes feasibility, design, and engineering studies for a wide variety of U.S. private- and public-sector facilities.

Financial Flexibility

With so much concern surrounding government spending, most specifically in terms of renewable energy, many state investment projects can benefit from one of several financing strategies aimed at reducing upfront capital costs. ANTARES is well versed in providing comprehensive technical support for the complex financial models set up between state agencies and third parties, and we can help to improve your project’s bottom line through contracting arrangements such as PPAs, ESPCs, and UESCs.
