New York, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Clear Skies Solar Inc. (CSS) has announced the much-anticipated development of their 34-acre property in the Cantil section of California’s Mojave desert has started. The project will be a minimum of 6 megawatts (MW) in capacity and will cost close to $20 million.
Engineering is set to begin on the first 3 MW in the fourth quarter of 2009, and development of the second stage of the project to begin by the second quarter of 2010. The maximum size of the project will be dependent on capacity of the onsite substation and existing transmission line capacity.
Clear Skies also announced that it has reached a $10 million strategic partnership deal with MyNJSolar LLC, a residential solar installer based in Holmdel, New Jersey
“After working with several other commercial solar companies, Clear Skies Solar has proven by far to outperform in the industrial & commercial arena. Their past performance and in-house capabilities make for many satisfied customers and a very strong future,” said Rob Stolker, CEO of MyNJSolar. “We expect to deliver at least 500-700 kW of projects to CSS based on our current customer base, past sales and growth rate through 2009. Our projections for 2010 exceed two megawatts now that the markets and economy have stabilized and we look forward to expanding on that pipeline with CSS.”
