Nelnet introduced a new business line, Nelnet Renewable Energy, offering community solar developers comprehensive and scalable subscriber acquisition, management and support services. The company also launched a new consumer website, NelnetEnergy.com, aimed at promoting renewable energy and supporting its community solar subscriber acquisition efforts.
Nelnet Renewable Energy is committed to expanding renewable energy use by helping solar developers find subscribers for their community solar projects — homeowners, renters and businesses looking for accessible and affordable solar energy. To help community solar developers achieve fully subscribed projects, Nelnet Renewable Energy starts with a project-specific, multi-channel marketing plan, coupled with effective subscriber education content, flexible enrollment options and ongoing customer engagement. In addition, the organization provides customer service, billing, payment processing, utility coordination and management and subscriber replenishment — along with access to a developer management platform for portfolio oversight — as part of their services.
“Green is more than just our corporate color,” stated Jeff Noordhoek, CEO of Nelnet. “It’s our commitment to the future. With Nelnet Renewable Energy, we have an opportunity to play a vital role in the growth of renewable energy through funding solar energy projects and providing subscriber acquisition and management services for the community solar developers with whom we partner. Community solar is an exciting area of growth for investors and developers, and it’s a big win for the residents and business owners who previously were unable to support renewable energy use. Solar energy use is great for the environment, so being part of that tremendous growth is rewarding.”
