DSD Announces New Corporate HQ at Mohawk Harbor
DSD proudly announces the opening of its new corporate headquarters at Mohawk Harbor!
After seven years of incubation at GE’s Schenectady campus, and after a long-term investment deal from our asset management and renewables investment partner BlackRock, it was time for DSD to create its own home.

Philosophically speaking, it was time for the company to establish its own identity and independence. Practically speaking, DSD needed the space to support its team’s enormous growth.
“This leader in solar power could have located anywhere. We are very pleased to see DSD move its corporate headquarters to Mohawk Harbor.”
“We’re excited to give our employees an office space with a beautiful, innovative design that matches the energy and culture of the DSD team,” says Erik Schiemann, CEO of DSD. “This is an ideal location that will allow us to continue to expand as our business grows.”
DSD’s new headquarters is built within a 60-acre master planned community at Mohawk Harbor, which integrates high-technology offices, restaurants, retail and more, along one mile of scenic waterfront. The move also reflects the continued evolution of Schenectady — the original home of GE, known as “The City That Lights the World” — as a hub of innovation.
“This leader in solar power could have located anywhere,” says Gary McCarthy, the Mayor of Schenectady. “We are very pleased to see DSD move its corporate headquarters to Mohawk Harbor.”

The operation and maintenance (O&M) of a solar asset — also known as “asset management” — is key to reducing the volatility of its energy output over the long term.
DSD’s VP of Design & Engineering, Ben Jones, talks about the process of designing solar canopies, the evolution of ESG strategies, Ted Lasso, and more.
This slow evolution of energy strategies — gradually increasing renewables while still clinging on to the “tried and true” — needs to be accelerated.
