T-Mobile became the first major U.S. telecom to succeed in achieving its RE100 commitment to source 100% of its total electricity usage from renewable electricity earlier in the year. This Sunscription is in line with the same commitment to a sustainable future.
T-Mobile will be joined by a mixture of residential, public entities, and commercial subscribers in these gardens. The first three Community Solar Gardens were brought to life in the latter part of 2021, while the other 11 gardens are in different stages of construction and development.
"We are excited to partner with T-Mobile and provide a renewable energy solution to support their industry-leading sustainability goals in Minnesota and across the nation," said Erica Forsman, Vice President of Origination, US Solar. "We're focused on providing solutions to our commercial partners that make it simple and beneficial to support local clean energy."
Community Solar aids in better access to solar energy even for businesses and homes that do not meet the criteria for a rooftop solar installation.
“Partners like US Solar not only help T-Mobile achieve our sustainability goals, but also bring critical new clean energy benefits to local communities and organizations for a more sustainable future,” says Chad Wilkerson, Director of Sustainability and Infrastructure Sourcing, T-Mobile.
Across Minnesota, US Solar has over 120MW of operational Community Solar Gardens that provide clean, renewable electricity to Xcel Energy’s grid.
