What Does GroundWork Do?

GroundWork provides advanced meteorological, or MET, products and services for utility-scale solar project developers, owners, constructors, and financing providers.  MET data includes solar irradiance, albedo, soiling, and other weather and operating data spanning the utility-scale solar plant lifecycle from site selection through plant operations. GroundWork’s services equip utility-scale solar asset owners with detailed irradiance data that provides increased confidence intervals around expected solar production pre-construction, and helps operators maximize energy production and cash flows once the plant is constructed.

Customer Value Proposition

GroundWork offers comprehensive ground irradiance and MET data for the entire utility-scale solar value chain, allowing developers, owners, and constructors to enhance project financing terms and bankability, ensure engineering and installation integrity, and conduct continuous performance monitoring.

Climate Impact

By providing in-depth MET data for the entire utility-scale solar plant lifecycle, GroundWork plays a key role in driving the adoption of utility-scale solar energy, thus helping to accelerate the decarbonization of power production and the grid.
