EDF Renewables is about more than just producing clean, renewable energy for today’s world. We believe projects will have a better chance of success if we have an active presence in the community and respond to local interests. We engage early with stakeholders, connecting during the siting and permitting process and nurturing these relationships through installation and operation.

EDF Renewables is committed to providing future generations with the means to power their lives in the most economic, environmental and socially responsible ways possible.  For more insight into how EDF Renewables interacts with our local community please visit our Resources page and listen to the Ridge View Solar and Storage podcast series.
