Innovative Solar Systems LLC (ISS), one of the largest developers of utility scale solar PV systems in the country, has been hyping a capital raise this year to really ramp up its solar farm project pipelines. Well, post-ITC extension this is ramping up even more.
John E. Green, CEO for ISS, says the company will further increase its capital raise. With close to 2 GW of solar farm projects in its pipeline, ISS plans to expand to over 5 GW in the next 24-36 months. With the extension of the ITC, ISS intends to focus on taking more solar farm projects to COD.
ISS has had an extensive track record in states like North Carolina where the company currently has several large solar farms under construction: (1) 75 MW(AC) project, (2) 80 MW(AC) projects, several 50 MW(AC), 40 MW(AC), 35 MW(AC) and many 2 MW(AC) and 5 MW(AC) deals in N.C.
To take these new projects through later stages of development, ISS will partner with an investor to raise the capital needed for such expansion. That will allow ISS to expand to many more states and take its large pipeline of projects through completion and final commissioning. The partner will have full preferential access to the pipeline of projects, and will be provided an attractive return rate over the period of their investment.
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've discusses 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.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
