PowerSecure awarded $100 million of new solar projectsStaff writer ▼ | July 11, 2015
PowerSecure has been awarded $100 million in new solar projects, including a ground-mount system for one of the largest investor owned utilities (IOUs) in the United States.
Energy business $15 million in revenue for PowerSecure
These awards follow $120 million in utility grade solar projects announced in mid-2014 for a large IOU customer, and the recent announcement of nearly $30 million of microgrid and energy storage projects, which integrate significant solar energy resources.
"The solar marketplace remains very active and we are excited to add these new large awards to our growing backlog of utility-scale solar projects and complex microgrid solutions which integrate solar energy," said Sidney Hinton, chief executive officer of PowerSecure.
"Projects like these new solar awards build on our strong start to 2015 and add to the backlog that is already building for 2016," Hinton added.
The new IOU solar award has been contracted with the utility and is subject to regulatory approval by the state public utility commission and a subsequent notice to proceed from the utility customer, both of which are expected in the third quarter of 2015. If PowerSecure has not received the notice to proceed within 120 days, the contract is subject to termination. ■
