Industry-leading pipeline of smart power plants.

Since 2009, 8minute has been leading the transition to clean energy. Now, as Avantus, we are expanding on this success, connecting our development expertise with even broader products, services and technologies to solve real-world problems for our customers.

Smart Power Plant

Power for 20 million people day & night

We have a record-setting history of taking solar projects from design to reality by creating novel solutions across the project lifecycle - from permitting to financing to construction. We're applying this development expertise to execute on our massive pipeline and bring clean energy to millions of people across the Western United States. Our current project pipeline is projected to deliver:

46 GW
System Capacity
30 GWdc
94 GWh
Energy Storage
94 %
Interconnection Retention Rate

Our development advantages

Innovative Mindset

We’re addicted to pushing the boundaries of technology, engineering and design. Our dedication to R&D and unique technology-agnostic approach enables us to drive down costs, optimize performance and expand the market for clean energy that is lower cost and more reliable than fossil fuel plants, and available day or night.

Proven Partner

We look at power production through the eyes of utilities, corporates, landowners, communities and investors, then we tailor every project to maximize value across the board. Together, we’re shifting longstanding perceptions around renewable energy and bringing “smart generation” to the 21st century grid.

Flawless Execution

Our laser focus on renewables enables us to consistently deliver projects from concept to completion – and to shatter industry records in the process. From one of the largest solar clusters in the U.S. to one of the first operating solar plants to beat fossil fuel prices, we’re setting new standards of excellence.


Where we serve

Since our inception, we have executed over two dozen power purchase agreements across the Western United States, including multiple projects with the largest utilities in California and Nevada. We successfully developed, financed and constructed over 2 GW of operating solar projects and have one of the largest portfolio of smart power plants with integrated storage under development, including many industry-first projects.

Protecting California habitat and wildlife

The sheer scale of our portfolio inspires innovative mitigation strategies of the same magnitude. See how we offset potential habitat impacts with the Onyx Conservation Project in Kern County, California.

There are no red counties or blue counties, only solar counties

The best opportunities for solar energy development — and the economic development and jobs such projects bring — aren’t just along America’s traditionally “blue” coasts, but in deep-red counties across the country.
