Nexamp Establishes Chicago, Illinois, National Headquarters

Nexamp, the largest community solar provider in the U.S., plans to expand its operations in Chicago, Illinois. The project is expected to create 50 jobs.

The company’s existing office will now serve as its second national headquarters.

“Thanks to Governor Pritzker’s leadership in securing the passage of the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act in 2021, Illinois is our fastest growing market,” said Nexamp CEO Zaid Ashai. “But the state is far more than just an attractive market for solar generation—for Nexamp, it’s a state which shares our vision of a cleaner, more equitable energy future powered by a diverse, equitable, and skilled workforce. As we sought a location for a second headquarters, Illinois was the natural choice because of our mutual interest in seeing clean energy work for – and do right by – everyone.”

Nexamp provides solutions for the deployment and operation of solar energy assets. The company’s capabilities span the entire solar project lifecycle – from project development, design and construction, through financing, operations, and maintenance.

“Nexamp’s decision to locate their new headquarters in Chicago after a positive experience in the state over the last five years is the latest example of why Illinois is the best place to live, work and do business,” noted DCEO Director Kristin Richards. “The State of Illinois shares a vision of a clean energy future with Nexamp, and together we will continue to build the jobs of the future in the clean energy ecosystem.”
