Behind the Meter Wind for Industrial Facilities with Jereme Kent, CEO One Energy Ep118

Behind the meter, the wind has some vexing characteristics that until now have kept it largely off the playing field for large facility operators. One Energy has seemingly cracked the code by offering a bespoke, white-glove approach. Their 1.5 MW turbines produce up to 5 million kWh per year of on-site Clean energy (note the high capacity factor). They install, own, and operate turbines and sell a PPA to their industrial customers. 

My guest today is Jereme Kent, founder, and CEO of One Energy. Jereme is a wind industry veteran of 16 years. 

One Energy is an industrial power company that helps large energy users build modern, tailored, on-site power grids for their facilities. Jereme Kent is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of One Energy Enterprises Inc. Prior to founding One Energy, Jereme ran construction of several of the world’s largest wind projects for utility-scale construction firms including RMT, M.A. Mortensen, and D.H. Blattner, and has overseen more than half a billion dollars in wind turbine construction projects. 

In this episode of the Clean Power Hour, he joins Tim Montague to discuss whether it is possible to break the 2-cent PPA barrier with small wind, the pros and cons of behind-the-meter wind vs behind the meter solar, and much more. 

Key Takeaways

  5. The process and the consideration that you and your customers 
  6. The technology One Energy uses to avoid ice build-up on solar blades
  7. Is One energy exploring the use of a microgrid approach when you can operate in off-grid mode? 
  8. What one energy is looking to do on the Power Infrastructure side?
