From development to construction and operation, we engaged with local community members, landowners, businesses and more to bring Santa Rita East to fruition. Wherever we develop projects, Invenergy is focused on ensuring the long-term success of our sites.
“Invenergy personnel and their families will be making these communities their homes, working, living and sending their kids to school there,” says Invenergy’s Executive Vice President of North American Development Mick Baird . “When making commitments during development, we think about how community members will view our decisions 5, 10 and 20 years after we make them, and that thinking drives everything we do."
During Santa Rita East’s development and construction, Invenergy’s team prioritized supporting local shops, restaurants and businesses, as well as spending time in the surrounding communities.
Throughout construction of Santa Rita East, Invenergy employees made a concerted effort to keep landowners involved with the project aware of the construction crew’s daily work to work with the landowners’ daily routines. One of Invenergy’s guiding principles during project development is viewing landowners and community members as partners in the project, and this mindset has been essential to our continued success and our ability to bring clean energy communities around the world.
