Camp Courageous

Roof Mount Solar and Battery Energy Storage Systems


As the solar integrator, we developed, permitted, procured, and constructed this 275 kW project prior to sale. After being awarded a single smaller project in a competitive RFP process, we built a full-scale solar plan and completed engineering. Additionally, we set up curtailment schemes between buildings, providing a unique solution for the owner. Today, we manage Camp Courageous’ energy arbitrage operations on-site with a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).


Roof Mount Solar

Iowa – 14 sites

We acted as the solar integrator for Theisen’s projects and became the preferred partner for the auto, farm, and home retailer. Additionally, we were asked to design and develop new facilities for Theisen’s at each of the 14 locations. The 315 kW projects were completed in 2017.

Owned and Operated Assets


Great River Medical Center

Ground Mount Solar


We oversaw procurement and construction management for Great River Medical Center’s 2.99 MW solar project. Additionally, we successfully created a new behind-the-meter interconnection pathway approval. Internally, we sourced the full capital stack for the project, which began operation in 2019 and continues today.
