Insights and Perspectives from OYA Solar CEO

“I think developers have gotten much better at anticipating the needs of the community and the stakeholders outside of just the municipality, or the county or the state.”

Manish NayarCEO

Our Mission

OYA Solar works hard every day to bring cleaner, healthier energy to local communities.

We develop responsible, local, clean solar energy in challenging locations to widespread economic and environmental benefits for local landowners, communities, and businesses.

Our Shared Values


As solar developers, we have an obligation to the communities where we build solar projects to treat the land and the people with respect. Our projects last 25+ years and we build trust that lasts as long.


Our solar projects are for the communities where we build, bringing jobs and clean energy to the people who live nearby. We serve local communities with solar power and power their economies.

Clean Energy

We want a brighter future for all members of the communities we serve.  Solar power reduces the need for energy from polluters, leading to cleaner air and healthier communities.


We are committed to delivering our projects to the communities where the solar energy is most valuable. We prioritize the underserved where access to solar has been limited and polluters have the largest impact on health. Everyone is valuable.

Solar Project Development

OYA Solar engineering and development teams handle all regulatory, legal, environmental, logistical and technical aspects in our pipeline. Working with all stakeholders, we ensure that projects are financeable and reach operational.


We can source solar project opportunities at any stage of development using our three-pronged strategy. It combines in-house greenfield origination with pipeline opportunities from our sister companies and channel partner relationships across North America.


Once our projects are shovel-ready, we draw on strong relationships with multiple contractors and manufacturers across North America and globally. Our high-performance ratios and system uptime on our solar plants come from our own internal commissioning and quality assurance monitoring protocols.

Power Marketing

OYA Solar’s internal marketing team handles C&I power offtake (community solar subscription and Power Purchase agreements) to ensure all projects are fully subscribed.
