SolRiver Capital has announced the commercial operation of the 5.8 MW Warbler Solar project in Cleveland County, North Carolina. The project is the latest of SolRiver’s projects in North Carolina and expected to produce nearly 8,300 MWh annually.
“Warbler Solar demonstrates SolRiver’s commitment to the utility-scale solar market in North Carolina,” said Brandon Conard, Partner at SolRiver Capital. “Cleveland County is seeing a surge in economic activity through a number of new manufacturing facilities that will benefit from the clean power generated by this project. We’re proud to help drive that economic growth.”
The Warbler Solar project was developed by Birdseye Renewable Energy. “Working with SolRiver Capital on Warbler was a great experience,” said Peden Harris, COO of Birdseye Renewable Energy. “We have a high degree of trust in their team, they’ve proven repeatedly that they understand the nuances of project development and we’ve been able to work very collaboratively and openly together as a result.”
“North Carolina is an attractive market for us,” Nick Gazzolo, Partner at SolRiver Capital added. “Our team has been a trusted partner to a number of developers trying to navigate the state’s utility-scale solar market and we’re proud to have helped a number of projects get from early-stage development to construction and operation.”
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.
