Continuum Partners Adds Community Solar
Continuum Partners, a Denver-based real estate developer, is adding community solar at one of its mixed-use commercial properties with clean energy that will reduce electricity costs for eight of the building’s tenants.
The agreement was signed with national renewable energy provider Pivot Energy for a 1.45 MW community solar subscription and will offset 100% of the electricity usage.
Continuum has explored a range of green building development strategies since its founding 25 years ago. This community solar subscription shows continued commitment to sustainability and will offset over 1,800 tons of CO2 annually.
“As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we’ve been reinvigorated in our aim to incorporate renewable energy and other green initiatives into our projects,” said Continuum CEO Mark Falcone in a statement. When we learned that Pivot is a certified B-Corporation with established ESG goals, we knew it would be the perfect like-minded partner to support our environmental goals while helping us provide value to our tenants.”
The community solar subscription will provide roughly $390,000 in lifetime electricity savings to its commercial tenants. The property, which includes a hotel, offices, shops, and an underground parking garage, is located south of Union Station on 16th and Wewatta in downtown Denver.
