Evergreen Energy Solutions (E2S) is part of the Evergreen Cooperatives Initiative in Cleveland, Ohio, formed to stabilize the Greater University Circle neighborhoods and create living wage jobs for the worker owners of each of its businesses. E2S designs and installs solar panel arrays for institutional, governmental and commercial markets. In some cases, E2S’s role is complete once the installation is done. In others, it retains ownership of the solar panels and negotiates a Purchasing Power Agreement (PPA) with the building owner that pays a guaranteed rate for the power generated. E2S also provides energy audits and efficiency upgrades for residential and commercial customers. Its customers have included Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, Case Western Reserve University, City of Cleveland, City of Euclid and the Cleveland Housing Network.
