The solar developer Core Development Group has received a development contract for the installation of solar energy on 30 properties from Extra Space Storage. The Core Development Group will be responsible for the design, development and project management of PV systems.
“We’re incredibly proud and excited to be working with such a respected and like-minded company as Extra Space Storage,” said Henry Cortes, owner and founder of the Core Development Group. “I know our collaboration will have a positive impact on environmental and climate goals in several US regions.”
The RFP, which comprised over 100 properties, is part of Extra Space’s ongoing commitment to sustainability through renewable energies. The company was named the leading US self-storage company for sustainability by GRESB, JUST Capital and Sustainalytics in 2020. The company already has solar systems on many of its properties and was previously listed in the “Top 25 corporate users by number of solar systems” by SEIA.

At Extra Space, our solar program is part of our larger sustainability goals. We believe that through this effort, we can do the best for our employees, our customers, our shareholders, our communities and the environment, ”said Kurt Gnessin, vice president of facility services, Extra Space Storage.
