Other project partners include Inman Solar, Nautilus Solar Energy, Stafford Properties Inc. and The Real Thing Solar Energy Services.
BrightPath Energy and The Real Thing Solar Energy Services developed and structured the project before selling their interest in the solar plant to Nautilus Solar. Nautilus Solar, the permanent owner of the system, will manage the construction process with Inman Solar. Inman Solar is designing, engineering and constructing the system.Â
Stafford Properties of Atlanta owns the fully leased 88,000 square-foot Publix-anchored shopping center. Gainesville Regional Utilities, the local utility, will buy the power under its feed-in tariff program.
