Liberty is actively working to make a positive and permanent contribution to a sustainable energy and water future. From wind and solar to hydro-electric power, we’re continuing to grow our sustainable energy offerings that allow businesses to meet their renewable goals.
Not only does renewable energy protect our environment, but it makes more economic sense than ever. Changes in cost through innovation and technology have made generating renewable energy in our regions a cost-effective and reliable way to help produce the power we need and to control our energy future. In addition, wind farms, solar arrays, hydroelectric facilities, and renewable natural gas bring jobs and tax revenue to the communities we serve.

Prosperity Solar Facility
Construction of this 11-acre solar farm of 5700 panels began in September 2020 and was in service by March 2021. Customers subscribe for up to half of their monthly usage. While this facility is currently full, customers can sign up for future expansion and the plan is to expand to sustainable energy for all customers to allow direct access to community solar farms.
Sagehen Micro Grid
Sagehen Creek Field Station is a research and education facility managed by the University of California Berkley. The micro grid is a cost-effective, sustainable solution that provides resiliency to the customer. It also can be completely de-energized during the wildfire season in the summer months.
We're always ready to roll up our sleeves and solve the tough problems. We work with our partners to build pathways to success. Because more is at stake than just economic development. We have the power to impact people's lives for the better by creating a brighter, more sustainable future for the companies we help and the communities we serve.
