Sustainable business growth drives Invenergy's broader sustainability efforts. Last year Invenergy experienced 25 percent growth in its portfolio of operating and advanced development projects. The company invested $3.1 billion to construct new energy facilities, which supported 3,695 jobs mostly in rural communities and small towns. The number of full-time Invenergy employees also grew nearly 7 percent, to just over 950 employees worldwide.

"At Invenergy, sustainability is about more than just advancing innovative renewable and clean energy technologies, it's about environmental stewardship, community investment and empowering people," said Invenergy's Founder and CEO, Michael Polsky. "As a privately-held company, Invenergy voluntarily embraces and reports on sustainable business practices because sustainability just makes sense, and I am proud of what our employees do every day to further this work."

The Invenergy Impact: 2018 Sustainability Report reflects the company's investments related to three core pillars: Environmental Stewardship, Community Investment and Empowering People. Highlights from each of these areas include:

  • In 2018, projects developed by Invenergy offset an additional 14 million tons of carbon dioxide pollution, the equivalent of planting 300 million trees or taking half a million cars off the road.
  • Invenergy energy centers generated $160 million of economic investment in its home communities in 2018 through wages & benefits, landowner payments and state & local taxes. Invenergy also invested $1 million in cause-based giving and volunteer time to nonprofits and charitable organizations.
  • 48 hours of safety training on average per Invenergy Services employee, combined with other measures, ensure a strong safety culture and have helped the company achieve its lowest incident and lost work rates. Invenergy also invested in initiatives to support careers in energy for women, people of color and military veterans.

Invenergy believes the sustainable energy movement is about people who commit themselves to building a better world. Whether by developing projects that deliver clean energy all over the world, protecting wildlife habitat, investing in the communities Invenergy employees call home, or supporting its people, the company is turning energy innovation into social good.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lineworkers chase storms, climb towering poles and are always ready when severe weather strikes. And when the lights go out, our lineworkers shine.

Whether perched on a 40-foot pole or sky high in an elevated bucket truck, lineworkers ensure the electricity is flowing to power vital infrastructure from hospitals and water treatment facilities to businesses and industries and our everyday conveniences at home.

On April 18, we celebrate our lineworkers' role in powering the lives of millions of people across the country for National Lineman Appreciation Day.

"Powering the lives of hard-working families and communities is the most important job we have," said Lloyd Yates, executive vice president customer and delivery operations and president Carolinas. "Lineworkers' brave and vital work on the front lines requires dedication, passion and continuous training. Today, we honor them for keeping the lights on across America."

Lineworker hiring
If you like working outdoors, tackling challenges, working as a team and making a steady salary with overtime and advancement opportunities, Duke Energy and other companies who work on the electric grid are hiring. Nearly 900 lineworkers are needed this year to support Duke Energy's grid improvement work.

Anyone interested in lineworker positions can join our talent community, a pipeline for future recruitment, to stay connected about new lineworker opportunities. Visit https://dukeenergy.avature.net/DELineworker or text 'lineworker' to 67076. As positions become available, our recruiting team will notify the talent community.

Technology
While more traditional aspects of the job such as climbing poles and towers remain, technology has further enhanced the profession. Drones can be used to assess damage and string lines in areas with limited access following severe weather events.

New portable technology used by lineworkers in the field helps better inform customers on the status of outages including the causes, crew updates and the estimated times of restoration.

Technology developed by Duke Energy called "Ping It" helps crews quickly identify remaining outages as repairs are made to damaged lines. The technology "pings" customers' smart meters to verify the status of an outage, which saves crews time in the field, especially when restoring power after a storm.

More than 7,800 Duke Energy and contract lineworkers are part of the Duke Energy team. They are responsible for constructing, operating and maintaining equipment and more than 300,000 miles of power lines in Duke Energy's service territories – that is enough to wrap around the Earth 12 times.

Those who wish to honor lineworkers and their families are encouraged to use the hashtag #ThankALineman on social media.

For more information about Duke Energy's lineworkers, follow @DukeEnergy and visit facebook.com/DukeEnergy.

B-roll of lineworkers in the field is available, here: https://news.duke-energy.com/file?fid=560ef6e95e8eef0635e13d15.

ALBANY, N.Y., April 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynamic Energy Solutions, LLC, a leading solar energy project developer and installer, today announced that they have completed construction of one of the largest community solar projects in New York State. The 5.49‑megawatt project, known as the Capital Region Community Solar Garden, will generate more than 7,300 megawatt-hours per year, the equivalent of powering more than 800 homes.

Community solar projects are designed to provide solar access to residents and businesses who may not own property or have ideal roof conditions to support solar panels. The Capital Region Community Solar Garden is a remotely installed solar panel garden consisting of two adjacent 2.7-megawatt arrays in Altamont, NY. Residents and businesses who subscribe to the solar garden will have a portion of the garden's production allocated to their electric account, which will provide them with a discount to their monthly electricity costs.

"We are thrilled that the Capital Region Community Solar Garden is now live and generating clean, renewable energy in the Albany, NY area," said Michael Perillo, Founder and CEO of Dynamic Energy Solutions. "This project offers customers of National Grid an easy and cost-effective way to go solar. It's free to join, requires no installation or maintenance, and provides savings to subscribers on their electricity costs. We are proud to have developed one of the largest community solar projects in the state, as these gardens support local, renewable energy generation, reduce air pollution, and generate local jobs."

The Capital Region Community Solar Garden received support from NYSERDA through NY-Sun, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's $1 billion initiative to advance the scale-up of solar and move New York closer to having a sustainable, self-sufficient solar industry. Since 2011, solar in New York State has increased more than 1,500 percent and leveraged nearly $3.5 billion in private investments. There are currently nearly 12,000 people engaged in solar jobs across New York.

"Congratulations to Dynamic Energy on the completion of their community solar project, which is an increasingly popular option for residents and businesses as we work towards meeting New York's nation-leading clean energy goals under Governor Cuomo's Green New Deal," said Alicia Barton, President and CEO, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). "I commend the Capital Region community for taking part in solar energy projects like this one to help reduce emissions and support locally-produced renewable energy."

"Dynamic's team has built a robust community solar subscription and operations platform that is bringing solar to residents of the Capital Region that currently lack access behind-the-meter," said Noah Kirsch, Director of Finance at Wunder Capital. "At Wunder, we're pushing aggressively to finance community solar's rapid growth, and we're excited to have another opportunity to partner with Dynamic as owner-operator of these assets."

Dynamic Energy developed, installed and owns the project. Dynamic Energy has partnered with the Solomon Organization, a leading multi-family real estate investment, management and development firm, to provide Solomon residents in the Capital Region the opportunity to subscribe to the solar garden.
