Solar Company Nexamp Selects Chicago for Second HQ

Nexamp, a national solar provider, announced that its office in Chicago, Illinois, will be the company’s second national headquarters. By 2026, Nexamp expects to add 50 team members in Chicago, and the company plans to expand in the Midwest. This expansion is part of more than $2 billion in planned investments in Illinois through its existing projects and development pipeline.

“Illinois’ commitment to sustainable energy wouldn’t be possible without innovative companies like Nexamp—and their decision to open a Chicago headquarters underscores the role Illinois is playing in the national solar conversation,” said Governor JB Pritzker.

Nexamp’s first Chicago office opened in 2019, and the company builds, owns, and operates community solar and storage projects that feed renewable energy to the power grid. As part of its collaboration with the Future Energy Jobs Act, Nexamp has developed new construction management roles that will only be offered to Equity Eligible Persons candidates living in the greater Chicago area.

Connect Industrial Midwest 2024 will take place on March 5, 2024, at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here for more information and to register.
