Instructions & Background Information
Who should complete this survey?
If your company has solar energy systems serving any of its facilities in the United States (either directly on-site or off-site through community solar, virtual PPA or similar arrangement), your company should complete this survey.
How survey data will be used:
Survey data will be used to produce summary statistics like those included in the Solar Means Business report. Data submitted forms the basis for our Top Corporate Solar User rankings. Each project submitted will be displayed in an interactive map, along with every other commercial solar project in the U.S.
Completing and Submitting the Survey
Please provide company and contact information in the top section of the survey. For each solar energy system serving any of your company’s U.S. facilities (either on-site or off-site), please fill out one row. Click the orange “Add New Row” button for each additional project that needs to be added. Once finished, click the green "Submit" button. If its easier to copy and paste multiple projects in at once, please click the purple “Bulk Upload” button to download an Excel version of this survey. Completed Excel versions can be uploaded through the same “Bulk Upload” portal.
Please only provide data on solar facilities installed and operating (or scheduled to be operating) through the end of 2019. Please try to provide data for each field to help us keep track of multiple responses that may occur when we receive data from both the landlord and commercial tenant of a particular property. (We will give credit to both firms but do not want to double count systems in our summary, aggregate statistics.) Complete system level data will help us deduplicate data obtained from both this survey and public databases of electricity infrastructure and allow us to convey a compelling story to local and national media.
If you have any questions about the report or the survey, please contact Rachel Goldstein at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 556-2906.
