About Us


Solar Landscape is a groundbreaking renewable energy company on a mission to make solar power affordable and accessible to all.


Solar Landscape partners with commercial real estate companies to develop, install and operate large rooftop solar installations. Households in the surrounding communities can subscribe to receive solar power at a guaranteed discount. This innovative model – community solar – is providing solar power to the two-thirds of Americans that cannot otherwise access it.


Solar Landscape is growing fast. Doubling in size year after year, we are looking for the best and brightest to drive our next phase of growth. We’re made up of thought leaders, thinkers, dreamers, doers. We are insightful, driven, rebellious, fun, and we are better together.
