Our Approach

GSP approaches development with an owner’s mindset, thanks to our decades of collective experience developing, acquiring, and financing projects for a long-term owner-operator. Rigorous siting analysis and an emphasis on financeability drive GSP’s development efforts and set our approach apart from others’.


GSP’s project siting process starts with RTO- and state-level analyses to identify the most promising regions for renewables and BESS, and the key risks and opportunities in each. GSP’s robust, GIS-based siting platform allows us to dive deeper into target markets, systematically evaluating potential sites based on dozens of criteria before identifying final project locations. The results are competitive projects with long-term value propositions.


We understand the requirements of all key project stakeholders – including landowners, permitting authorities, offtakers, lenders and tax equity investors, independent engineers, and owner-operators. We embrace those needs throughout our development process.
