Bringing the promise of renewable energy to the forgotten places of America.

“Our passion is leveraging new energy
to build a New American Dream.”

Adam Edelen, Founder & CEO of Edelen Renewables

Edelen Renewables is a developer of solar projects that drive social impact

Whether it’s bringing coal companies together with green energy advocates or developing abandoned mine lands to create employment for displaced coal miners, these are the hallmarks of the approach we bring to the historic work we do.

From land acquisition, facilitating public engagement and incentives, shepherding projects through regulatory processes, and securing corporate off-take agreements (VPPAs), these are the “boots-on ground” services we offer to produce results.

Our current pipeline of projects spans ten states, representing more than 3 GW of solar energy plus storage and more than $3 billion in capital investment. Our coal-to-solar projects on abandoned mines and decommissioned coal-generation power plants are located in Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Wyoming. 

“Adam Edelen and his team are among the
most innovative solar developers around.”

Kiran Bhataraju, Founder & CEO of Arcadia Power
