Bright Spaces Shines Its Green Light on a New Solar Concept

Affordable and accessible utility solar project development program launches in Georgia.

Atlanta, GA March 06, 2014


The Bright Spaces program, launched by solar panel development and installation company Creative Solar USA, brings a unique concept to commercial customers in Georgia. Bright Spaces is a solar development program designed to leverage local utility provider's, such as Georgia Power and Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA), solar energy initiative programs, which allow customers to sell electricity back to the utility providers.

The Bright Spaces team, with more than 20 years of collective experience developing solar projects, makes often challenging and complicated utility solar project development processes more accessible, simple, faster and affordable for customers without putting upward pressure on rates.

"Bright Spaces offers an invaluable service to commercial customers looking to make a solar investment, including determining a viable path for their projects, employing strategies to reduce soft costs and using software tools that enable more accurate quotes," says Russell Seifert, founder of Creative Solar USA. "Bright Spaces furthers Creative Solar USA's commitment to building a cleaner, more sustainable future."

Bright Spaces presents three investment options to own and/or lease land or roof space in a Georgia Power or TVA service area:

Own It

An owner is a solar developer who owns solar panels and develops a solar facility, leasing the land or roof space from a host.

Host It

A host is a property owner who "hosts" solar panels, leasing the land or roof space to a solar developer ("owner").

Own & Host It

An owner and host (the same person) is a property owner who owns solar panels and develops a solar facility on their own land or roof space.

At the end of March, Georgia Power will again accept applications for its Advanced Solar Initiative program. Interested parties should act now to begin an application with Bright Spaces.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
