"I'm thrilled to help this team deliver reliable, fixed price solar energy to qualified commercial, industrial, and institutional customers as part of their leveraged energy portfolio. In addition, by doing so, we'll satisfy growing investor demand for high-quality utility-scale project opportunities."
