Florida Solar Power Facilities – ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company announced today that it has acquired 2.05 Megawatts of operating solar power facilities located in Gainesville, Florida for a purchase price of $4,150,000 plus closing costs.
The Gainesville Solar assets, which closed on April 13, 2015 and April 16, 2015 respectively, are comprised of two ground mounted solar systems located on commercial properties. 100% of the electricity produced by these two solar systems are sold under long term solar energy agreements to the Gainesville Regional Utility which is rated Aa2 by Moody’s.
In total, the systems are expected to produce enough electricity to power approximately 336 homes for one year of typical use.
“We are extremely pleased to be purchasing these quality operating assets in Florida” stated Charles Wheeler, CEO of Greenbacker.
We anticipate that these assets will produce steady and predictable returns for our investors, and will add significant solar power generation capacity to Greenbacker’s growing solar asset portfolio.
With the completion of this acquisition, Greenbacker now owns and operates approximately 13 Megawatts of operating solar power facilities throughout the United States and Canada.
