Power Shift: The Industry Pivots to Renewable Generation

As the number of new renewable energy installations are overtaking the number of traditional fossil-fuel based generating plants being built, how are contractors and consultants changing their business practices to meet the new demand?

CMiC understands this space, and works with leading renewable energy contractors – both in North America and overseas.

  • Affordable Solar, a New Mexico-based specialty contractor focused on renewable energy and solar arrays, upgraded to CMiC in 2019. By all metrics and accounts, this has been and continues to be a successful, and a mutually-beneficial partnership.

  • About a year ago, Amana, one of the leading UAE-based contracting and construction groups, also chose CMiC as their construction management software platform. Amana’s Solar Division is a leading regional player in the solar rooftop space and is the first private grid-connected system in the government-backed Shams Dubai program.

"The ability to scale is ultimately the reason why we selected CMiC. They have delivered a complete and stable construction platform, and I can easily see us using it for the next 20 years. " Teresa Johansen, COO, Affordable Solar
