After reviewing several proposals, Nelnet Renewable Energy was chosen. Not only did Nelnet Renewable Energy supply the materials, but they also served as general contractor for this project. Nelnet Renewable Energy worked through all the permit and compliance requirements for this project. Nelnet Renewable Energy project management kept us informed as to workflow and any schedule changes. The solar array has been online and producing for one year. The solar array has met 100% of production expectations. Nelnet Renewable Energy is a very professional and dedicated group to work with. Thank you, Eric, and the Nelnet Renewable Energy team.
