Ecoplexus readies 25 MW of small solar projects in California

Ecoplexus Inc. on July 6 announced a 25-MW (dc) portfolio of projects across California, which consist of a combination of carport and ground-mounted installations, connecting behind-the-meter at a number of state facilities.

The portfolio will provide approximately 30.5 gigawatt-hours of clean electricity annually. The first 7 MW will be completed in August 2015, while the remaining projects are scheduled to complete construction in the spring of 2017. The host facilities include state hospitals, military bases and a variety of other facilities.

“We are pleased to play a role in satisfying California’s growing demand for clean energy,” said John Gorman, CEO of Ecoplexus.  “California has set a great example for other states to follow, and we are eager to support its efforts going forward.”

The company said it has constructed and financed over 50 projects to date, representing about $270 million in project value.
