As part of its continued efforts to strengthen the world's renewable energy resources, Real Capital Solar, an affiliate of Real Capital Solutions, has expanded its solar power operations throughout 2013.
Through collaboration with Namaste Solar, the company has helped build and finance a total of 1.55 MW of solar facilities for clients located throughout Colorado. The 1.55 MW portfolio is comprised of a 336 KW system at Peak to Peak Charter School in Lafayette; a 345 KW system at Kaiser Foundation's Wheat Ridge site; and four solar facilities totaling 869 KW for Mesa County Valley School District 51. These facilities will expand the company's renewable portfolio, which also includes a 169 kW solar system at its home office in Louisville, CO, as well as a 10.5 MW wind farm located in Idaho.
These solar installments will provide power to over 5,000 students as well as the personnel located at Kaiser's medical office building in Wheat Ridge. The successful development, construction and financing of each project is a clear demonstration that solar is a viable business that will lead to a more sustainable future – a future in which renewable energy resources are seamlessly integrated into daily life. As Real Capital Solution's founder and CEO Marcel Arsenault says, "We want to be responsible corporate citizens, and we're looking to expand our solar footprint by another $10 million in 2014 to exemplify our commitment to good business practices and ecological sustainability."
