Skylar Acquires Option Rights to Develop 180-MW Nevada Solar Project from KOWEPO Americas

Located 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, the Townsite project is shovel-ready, fully permitted and ITC eligible.

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands--Today Skylar Resources L.P. announces that it has acquired 100 percent interest in the option rights to develop the 180-megawatt (MW) Townsite photovoltaic project that KOWEPO Americas developed in Boulder City, Nevada. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.


"We are pleased to acquire the option rights to the Townsite project and look forward to meeting the growing demand for renewables in the West. Skylar will continue to pursue similar acquisitions as we actively seek solutions for complex structured products for our customers," said William O. Perkins III, CEO and President of Skylar Resources L.P.

Located 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, the Townsite project is shovel-ready, fully permitted and ITC eligible. The project is less than 3 miles from the MEAD substation and includes interconnection rights at MEAD. Through the acquisition, Skylar takes over the large generator interconnection agreement with the Western Area Power Administration ("Western"). Skylar also acquired an agreement with Western that enables Townsite power to reach customers in the California ISO, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power balancing authority, NV Energy territory, and other regions served by rights holders at the MEAD 230 kV station. The interconnection at MEAD associated with the project takes the last currently open bay at MEAD 230.

Skylar is in discussions with several developers and EPC firms to complete construction. Skylar currently has a 25 year Power Purchase Agreement with Glendale (CA) Water & Power and plans to use offtake power from the Townsite project to serve the municipal utility.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
