The FirstLight Difference
FirstLight is a leading clean power producer, developer, and energy storage company serving North America.

Our mission is to accelerate the decarbonization of the electric grid by supporting the development, operation, and integration of renewable energy and storage to meet the world’s growing clean energy needs and deliver an electric system that is clean, reliable, affordable, and equitable.
Building upon our industry-leading experience in operating large-scale renewable energy and storage assets, FirstLight’s mission and commitment to leading the energy industry transformation make us uniquely positioned to navigate rapidly evolving market conditions and grow our portfolio throughout North America.
We are proud of our deep roots in the regions where we work. Many of our facilities were installed over 100 years ago and are still in operation today, keeping alive the legacy of the assets and the local workers who operated them for decades. To deliver the innovation decarbonization requires, we’re building out our development pipeline with some of the most up-to-date technologies. But the real magic of FirstLight lies in our people — we would not be where we are today without the thoughtful, committed, and hard-working team we have.

“If I had to choose a single word to describe the corporate culture at FirstLight, it would be collaborative. All of the people that I’ve worked with are open to sharing knowledge and specifically their understanding of renewable energy policy, operations, and markets, which makes the company not only a great place to both work at, but one where I can continue to learn and grow as a professional.”Bryan Diaz, Director, Quantitative Services
