Clear Skies Solar, Inc. (CSS), a leading provider of turnkey solar electricity installations and renewable energy services, has partnered with Cavallo Energy, a large-scale energy management and finance procurement company, to develop CSS’ 34-acre property in the Cantil section of the Mojave Desert in California.
The partnership plans to develop a US $20-million solar photovoltaic facility on the site, which will have a minimum capacity of 6 megawatts (MW), with the maximum size of the project depending on the capacities of the onsite substation and the existing transmission line.
CSS will be the lead contractor and Cavallo will be in charge of the engineering and development of the project. Engineering on the first 3 MW of the project is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2009, with the development of the second stage to begin by the second quarter of next year.
CSS has chosen Cavallo to be its partner because of the latter’s knowledge in high voltage utility-scale power generation. “Strong partnering such as this will allow CSS to keep moving forward on several large-scale projects that were awaiting development and will enable us to resume the business model laid out by CSS prior to the credit market crash,” said Clear Skies Solar CEO Ezra Green.
“We are looking forward to developing a long relationship with Cavallo Energy for our backlog of large scale projects,” Green added.
New York-based Clear Skies Solar provides full-service renewable energy solutions to customers in the commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors, and has become one of the premier solar electric installation firms in the United States.
Cavallo Energy, a company based in Houston, Texas, not only develops natural gas and solar power generation plants and electric transmission lines but also conducts business in the natural gas and oil sectors.
