SAN DIEGO, November 24, 2014 – Equal Earth, a diversified renewable company, today announced that the company has acquired three separate solar projects developed by a well-known Ohio-based developer. The combined projects generate 1.6 MW of power and the off-takers include two established Ohio colleges and a local government organization.


Similar to recent Equal Earth acquisitions, this portfolio of projects has long-term PPA's with the off-takers. The deal is part of the firm's broader growth strategy to acquire long-term revenue-generating projects with low operational costs to generate predictable future cash flows and attractive after-tax returns.

"We're proud to play our part in helping schools and government to save money on their utility bills with solar," said Equal Earth Chairman, President and CEO, Andrew Duggan. "These projects will deliver environmental and financial benefits for years to come," added Duggan.

Earlier this month, Equal Earth announced that it is acquiring a 5 MW solar photovoltaic farm near Columbus, Ohio.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
