A Cut Above the Rest

Blue Ridge Power is a full-service EPC company for renewable energy projects across the United States. We bring integrated solar engineering, a qualified professional labor force and an expansive fleet of equipment to serve the needs of our clients looking for a turnkey solution for solar and solar + storage projects. Through global supply chain management, key strategic relationships with utilities and equipment suppliers and expertise at every phase of construction, we deliver results.
