Conergy, one of the world's largest downstream solar companies, relocated its U.S. headquarters from Denver to Miami, Florida. It is expected this relocation will add a minimum of 60 high-paying jobs to the local workforce within the next three years.
Conergy specializes in the design, finance, construction and long-term asset management and ownership of commercial, industrial and utility-scale solar power systems. Founded in 1998, the company has pioneered the expansion of solar energy globally and has built structures that generate more than 1.5 gigawatts across six continents. The solar industry is divided into its upstream manufacturing segment and downstream installation/finance segment.
"Miami is a unique, embracing melting pot, making it a perfect home for Conergy - a company comprised of passionate people from all walks of life and corners of the globe. Miami is also a convenient geographic hub to support Conergy's growing presence in both the U.S. and emerging markets in Latin America. An added bonus is that, we now have the privilege of being local neighbors with our majority shareholder: Kawa Capital Management," said Andrew de Pass, CEO of Conergy.
The Beacon Council, Miami-Dade County's official economic development organization, introduced Conergy leadership to representatives at local universities and colleges to help with sourcing talent from the area and assisted the company with permitting processes.
"This major Brazilian investor chose Miami because of its diversity and the access it has to markets throughout the Americas," The Beacon Council President/CEO Larry K. Williams said. "The Beacon Council helped them comply with local laws and regulations and eased their entrance into the market, so they can focus on creating more high-paying jobs."
