Blue Earth starts building 11 solar plants in Hawaii
Nov 20, 2013 - US green energy firm Blue Earth Inc (PINK:BBLU) said today its fully-owned unit BE Solar had launched construction on 11 rooftop solar power facilities on Hawaii's Kauai island.
The projects, the capacities of which were not provided, are part of a larger order which involves the delivery of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for 27 rooftop photovoltaic (PV) plants in Kauai under a Hawaii Schools project.
BE Solar will finish building the 11 solar systems during the first quarter of 2014. When up and running, the plants are expected to fetch about USD 2.4 million (EUR 1.8m) in revenue, while the whole BE Solar Hawaii Schools project is estimated to bring around USD 6 million.
Blue Earth said it would proceed with pre-construction works on the remaining solar projects it would develop in Kauai and Oahu. Those activities are seen to be completed in the near term. Meanwhile, the firm is moving forward on the order to build 18 MW of solar plants for Talesun Solar USA Ltd and 147 MW of systems for New Generation Power LLC in the next two years, which it secured in September, it noted.
