ConnectGen develops, builds and operates utility-scale renewable energy and energy storage projects across the United States.
As our existing power generation infrastructure ages, it is vital to tap into our country’s endless renewable resources and advance wind, solar and energy storage projects that will provide long-term, cost effective, clean energy solutions.
Successful project development and execution requires substantial and widespread participation from a diverse group of stakeholders. ConnectGen strives to establish and maintain close relationships with landowners, communities, public officials, customers and suppliers and deeply values stakeholder input and involvement. If you are a landowner, community leader or vendor, and you are interested in working with ConnectGen, please contact us.
Our Community Giving
We believe it is essential to be an active part of the communities where our people and projects are located. One way we show our commitment to communities is through supporting local nonprofit organizations. Each project we develop includes funding allocated to support local organizations, and we work with local community members to identify areas of need. We have supported dozens of organizations across the United States, ranging from public libraries to volunteer fire departments to public schools.
With more than 45 team members based at our headquarters in Houston, ConnectGen is proud to give back to our community. Each year we volunteer at the Houston Food Bank, America’s largest food bank in distribution leading hunger relief in 18 southeast Texas counties.
ConnectGen is a subsidiary of 547 Energy, Quantum Energy Partners’ clean energy platform company.
Quantum Energy Partners
