Who We Are: Borrego Solar’s mission is “to solve the world’s energy problems by accelerating the adoption of renewable energy.” To date we have installed more than 600 MW of solar while maintaining a reputation for quality, deep staff expertise, and a focus on building long-term relationships based on trust and transparency. But being the largest private commercial solar and energy storage company in the U.S. is not enough. Solving the world’s energy problems means moving from MWs to GWs across each of our three core businesses: project development, EPC, and O&M. And that is what we are going to do. Our 5-year goal is to be the leading solar and energy storage provider in the United States. Borrego’s past and future success is driven from our culture of teamwork, integrity, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Be a Part of Our Mission. Join the GW Revolution.
