Driving change to clean energy

Global developer of PV projects​



World Class Developers of Solar PV Farms with a Focus on the Local Community

We pride ourselves on identifying key stakeholders early in the development process and working together with them to create high value projects with the lowest impact to the surrounding landscape and community. We do this by forging partnerships in the communities where we work to make the process of integrating clean sources of locally produced energy into the environment a benefit to everyone involved.

Continued excellence in this field has allowed RIC Energy USA to adapt to the changing landscape of solar development in the United States and be well-positioned to usher in the age of 100% clean power for the majority of Americans throughout the country in the decades ahead.

Whether working with landowners, utilities or town officials, we are continually striving to achieve the dual goals of economic and ecological sustainability.
