Community Energy, Inc. (CEI) was founded in 1999 to ignite the market for fuel-free energy and develop solar and wind generation. CEI built the voluntary market for renewable energy, spurring the demand for hundreds of megawatts of new wind generation with retail customers ahead of state mandates. Now a leading solar developer, CEI has developed hundreds of MW of utility-scale solar across the country including two of the largest projects nation-wide in Georgia and Colorado. CEI also develops customer-sited and community-scale solar projects for businesses, universities, and residential customers. The company was awarded the American Wind Energy Association’s “Market-Maker” Award in 2002, and its Keystone Project received the Photovoltaic Projects of Distinction Award at PV America East in 2013. Those awards recognize what CEI does best—innovative marketing that builds new renewable generation.
