SunLink and Blattner Energy Partner on 148.5 MW Solar Project in Southeast U.S.

First project breaks ground in portfolio of utility-scale installations for companies

San Rafael, Calif., August 12, 2015 — Adding to its portfolio of leading utility-scale, fixed-tilt solar projects, SunLink Corporation has been selected as a project partner for a 148.5 MW solar PV portfolio project under development in the southeastern United States by Blattner Energy, a power generation contractor and leading provider of renewable energy construction in North America. SunLink will supply Blattner with its Large-Scale GMS Landscape mounting system together with a comprehensive range of engineering and onsite project management services.


"It takes proven engineering solutions, sophisticated products and a higher level of project-related services to support our nation's largest solar projects. Our partners turn to us because we deliver on all three counts, and they attest that we shine when it comes to utility-scale solar system optimization and valued project services," said Michael Maulick, CEO of SunLink. "Blattner selected SunLink based on our demonstrated ability to accommodate the many demands associated with complex projects, coupled with our ability to help our partners overcome obstacles and deliver a superior customer experience. Together, our shared dedication to quality outcomes helps us both operate more competitively in the market."

This latest project adds to Blattner's renewable energy portfolio of more than 25,000 MW of wind and solar power completed or under contract across North America. The Southeast is one of the fastest growing solar markets in the U.S., and it is attracting the nation's top solar companies, like Blattner and SunLink, that are bringing both economic and environmental benefits to local residents.

"Blattner prides itself on creating a better construction experience for our clients, and a cornerstone of that mission is building successful relationships with our project partners," said Scott Blattner, president of Blattner Energy. "SunLink brings a solid technology platform to the table. More importantly, their responsiveness, support and genuine desire for project success align with our commitment to delivering exceptional client service."
