Real Goods Solar Inc., a leading provider of turnkey solar energy solutions, has recently secured more than 5 MW in solar power projects across Arizona and California in key education, municipal, and commercial market segments. These significant multi-site programs were won by RGS Energy, the company’s commercial and utility division, and strengthen the company’s backlog as it begins 2013.
The project sites range from police and fire stations, city halls and community centers to educational facilities and a luxury resort. The installations will feature solar carports and rooftop arrays designed to blend into the individual aesthetics of each site, with all the projects expected to be completed in the first half of 2013.
“Expanding into these important market segments in the Southwest has been a key priority,” said Kam Mofid, Real Goods Solar CEO. “These wins strengthen our growth momentum as we enter 2013 and demonstrate RGS Energy’s ability to secure multi-million dollar solar power projects in both public and commercial sectors that provide substantial end-user savings.”
According to Tim Seamans, general manager of RGS Energy: “These projects will help our customers offset up to 80% of their electricity usage while substantially lowering their carbon footprint. We are proud to provide such outstanding economic and environmental benefits to our customers.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
