March 22 (Renewables Now) - Hong Kong-headquartered SPI Energy Co Ltd (NASDAQ:SPI) announced on Thursday it has acquired the owner of a 1.998-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) portfolio in Greece.
SP Orange Power (Cyprus) Ltd, a unit of SPI Energy, has bought Heliohrisi SA from Thermi Taneo Venture Capital Fund (TTVCF) for EUR 1.7 million (USD 1.9m) per MW.
