Clear Skies Solar Inc., a provider of turnkey solar electricity installations and renewable energy solutions, has signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Badger Creek Development LLC of Beverly Hills, Calif., for the design and construction of a 2.1 MW solar farm to be located in Badger, Calif.
The project, which is expected to exceed $8 million, is now in the initial design and engineering stages and will be structured as a utility power purchase agreement. Clear Skies will be working with Frontier Renewables LLC, a solar park developer and engineering, procurement and construction provider.
The solar park will be built on an existing 30 acre brownfield that once served as an airplane landing strip. This property has a substation that is capable of absorbing the additional 2.1 MW of electrical capacity. According to Clear Skies Solar, the location of the project provides an ideal opportunity for a solar farm because of its high radiation levels and limited air pollution.
