NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clear Skies Solar, Inc. (OTCBB:CSKH), a leading developer and provider of solar power solutions, today announced the awarding of a 150kW solar contract through its newly established partnership in Greece with Larissa-based, Aspen Energy. This project is valued at approximately US $1 million.
"The key in any good clean energy relationship is having local knowledge and combining that with technical expertise and efficiency; that's exactly the type of partnership Clear Skies and Aspen Energy are bringing to the Greek solar industry," said Clear Skies Solar Chairman and CEO, Ezra Green. "There's no question, Greece is one of the most progressive ‘solar-minded' countries today. Their current environment of available grants and favorable feed-in tariffs, presented a great opportunity for Clear Skies. We fully expect that this 150kW contract will be the first of many great solar energy opportunities in the region."
This contract covers a 150kW project which will consist of a ground mounted system covering approximately 1-acre and is expected to generate approximately 180,000 kW hours of electricity per year. It will prevent 176,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per year and, with financing pre-arranged, the anticipated start date is early October pending final permitting.
