    Partnering with Utah to accelerate a clean energy future.

    AES is a leading clean energy developer in Utah, with our US clean energy business headquartered in Salt Lake City. AES is committed to supporting a safe and reliable transition to clean energy as we invest in our people and local communities in the state. Utah has established its leadership in solar generating capacity, ranking 10th in the US. Together with our communities, partners and customers, AES is developing and delivering innovative clean energy solutions to help Utah achieve its goal of electric utilities generating 20% of their electricity through renewable energy by 2025.

    AES has more than 1,100 MW of planned solar and energy storage development in Utah. Our projects create jobs, build community partnerships, generate substantial property tax revenue for local governments and protect the environment. We are dedicated to building meaningful partnerships with local nonprofits, educational institutions and local businesses to ensure our projects provide long-lasting benefits to the community.

    Building partnerships to strengthen communities

    We believe in being a good neighbor, ensuring responsible clean energy development that benefits both the environment and local communities. At AES, we understand that our success as a company is only as strong as our partnerships with the communities where we operate. That’s why we partner with communities, customers, state agencies, higher education and elected officials to see how we can best work together to support sustainable social and economic development that complement the local geography and unique culture.

    All together with SEI Solar Workforce Development



    AES has partnered with Solar Energy International, a leading solar training and educational non-profit, to provide solar workforce development and training in Utah. As part of that effort, AES has created an AES-funded scholarship, which provides financial assistance for 20 Utah residents to cover solar education tuition fees. AES’ partnership with SEI includes two elements: the AES scholarship fund and consulting services for colleges and universities to provide career development for the future solar industry workforce. The partnership aims to stimulate local participation in Utah’s clean energy industry through professional development and training, ultimately leading to employment in the solar energy industry. Individuals selected for the AES scholarship will enroll in SEI’s North America Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) PV Associates training program, which includes online solar system design and installation classes along with NABCEP PV Associate testing. By empowering these individuals with the necessary training, the AES scholarship program will strengthen and build the growing Utah solar workforce.

    Preserving the land and creating new opportunities with landowners

    We understand the importance of protecting farmland and preserving the local environment when developing renewable energy projects. AES seeks opportunities to deliver added value through our best practices in project development to protect the land for future generations.

    We offer landowners opportunities to tap into new sources of revenue on their land while retaining ownership throughout the entire life of the project. For many, this is a welcome complement to land use and an opportunity to diversify their land investment while hedging against volatile commodity prices. For others, our projects offer an income stream and land-use option where none otherwise existed.

    Our team and landowners work together, in partnership, from the early stages of site discussions, through permitting, construction, and operation. The landowner relationship with AES is built on trust and open communication, ensuring our projects create a long-lasting, positive impact for our landowners and local communities.
