VCT Group (“VCT”), formerly Vigor Clean Tech, is a renewable energy system developer that helps people meet their investment goals while making a positive environmental impact. Over the past ten years, we have originated and developed a portfolio of over 200 solar PV systems ranging in size from 4kW to over 750kW. These installations include different types of rooftop and ground-mounted systems including dual-axis tracking technologies and carports. In partnership with our customers, we have produced over 50 million kWh of clean energy, reducing carbon emissions by more than 2,000 tonnes. While much of our construction has focused on financial and environmental impacts, we also maximize the positive aesthetic impacts of solar PV and looking forward, we are extending our solar expertise into developing micro-grid, battery storage and electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
VCT Group also founded and operates a renewable energy co-operative named CED Co-op. CED Co-op has raised over $17 million in investments from its 750 members, on its way to developing a portfolio of over $40 million worth of renewable energy projects.
