As global concern over climate change increases, so does the demand for affordable, renewable energy sources. In 2018, 10.6 GW of solar capacity was installed in the US, generating over $US17 billion in investments1. The total PV capacity in the US is expected to more than double by 2024 with an average of 15 GW coming online annually1. This will translate into direct investments of close to $US100 billion.
Over the past decade the Candela Renewables team collectively developed 26 solar projects in six states creating more than 6 GW of renewable energy capacity for some of the world’s largest corporate energy users. Upon launching Candela in June 2018, founders Brian Kunz and Nik Novograd set out to develop the US’ most reliable, cost effective and efficient solar power projects.
