CS Energy, LLC (“CS Energy”) a leading integrated energy firm that designs and builds optimized projects in the solar, storage and emerging energy industries, is excited to provide its year-end recap highlighting our key developments and accomplishments in 2019. The rapidly expanding company marked the year end with over 820 MW’s of solar projects completed or underway. In Q2 2019, the company successfully executed a complete rebranding, which entailed retiring the former name Conti Solar and subsequent creation and launch of the CS Energy brand identity.
Growth in the energy storage sector played a key role in CS Energy’s 2019 success. The company has deployed 106 MWh of battery storage across 16 projects, utilizing four integrators. Significant storage-based revenue sources included energy arbitrage using energy storage and microgrid deployment.
In addition to the solar+storage projects, CS Energy provided EPC services on solar PV projects across various market segments, including utility-scale, community solar, landfill solar, carportsolar, distributed generation, commercial and industrial.
In Q3 2019, the company announced the completion of the Cinnaminson Township capped-landfill solar project for PSE&G, New Jersey’s largest electric and gas utility. The 13 megawatt-dc (MW DC) site is the largest solar development project in Burlington County.
"2019 was filled with many accomplishments across the various business units in the company, from our upfront Engineering to project execution,” said Matthew Skidmore, CEO, “our future is bright, thanks to the talented team and key partnerships we have in place, and the stage is set for continued growth in 2020."
CS Energy garnered several prestigious energy industry awards in 2019. The Engineering News Record (ENR) “Regional Best Projects Awards” selected three CS Energy projects; Cinnaminson Landfill Solar Farm in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, was selected as “Best Project” in the Energy/Industrial category for the ENR New York region, Gold Meadow Farms Solar Project, located in Cranston, Rhode Island, was selected as “Best Project” winner in the Energy/Industrial category for the ENR New England region, and the Hill Air Force Base Solar Project, located at the Hill Air Force Base, Utah, was selected as the Merit awardee in the 2019 “Intermountain Best Projects Winners” in the Energy/Industrial category for the ENR Mountain States region.
Solar Power World ranked CS Energy as the “No. 1 solar installer in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island,” on the magazine's “2019 Top Solar Contractors” list and achieving a ranking of 16th overall out of 415 nationwide solar companies.
2019 also marked five years without a recordable injury to an employee, and the CS Energy safety culture won recognition in 2019 from New Jersey’s “91st Annual Governor’s Occupational Safety and Health Awards Program.”
