Mission & Values

Our Mission

4. We believe in the power of collaborative partnerships.
5. We believe we are only successful when our partners are successful.
6. We require honesty and integrity in everything we do.
7. We listen, learn, and respond.

9. We believe in square corners.
10. We choose the right path over the easier path to get the job done.

A Different Kind of Company

Silicon Ranch is unique in the business of creating renewable energy. We are, first and foremost, about serving people. Everything we do flows from there. We develop-to-own all of our solar farm projects and have a 100 percent track record of seeing them through from start to finish. That’s because we are 100 percent committed to our partners and our communities.

Our diverse portfolio includes more than 140 solar farms across 14 states from New York to California, including the first large-scale solar projects in Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi. We stand behind the performance of our solar projects every day.

Founded in 2011, we approach every community solar relationship with deep experience, as well as large, complex transactions and large-scale conventional and renewable energy generation. We are proud to be the U.S. solar platform for Shell Energy and to work with partners such as the U.S. Military, America’s electric cooperatives, and TVA. But most of all, we are committed to the people of rural America who deserve low-cost, clean energy and an economic shot in the arm. They are our fuel. They are what Silicon Ranch is all about.
