Clean Focus Completes 11.92 MW Six Community Solar Projects in US

Greenskies Renewable Energy will maintain the solar arrays, and Clean Focus Yield Limited will operate the system as part of its large portfolio of commercial, industrial, small utility, and community solar projects.

greenskies renewableClean Focus Renewables, Inc. has completed six community solar gardens in the United States. The projects will distribute clean, renewable energy to a wide range of Colorado subscribers.

Greenskies Renewable Energy will maintain the solar arrays, and Clean Focus Yield Limited will operate the system as part of its large portfolio of commercial, industrial, small utility, and community solar projects.

One of the proponents of community solar gardens in Colorado, said, “It is exciting to see the expansion of solar gardens in Colorado. Solar gardens give solar access to more people and businesses, create jobs, and reduce carbon pollution. This is a big win for Colorado.”

The ground-mount projects reside on open land in Watkins, Aurora, Platteville, Sterling, and La Jara, Colorado. These community solar gardens provide renewable energy to homes and businesses unsuitable for installing their own solar systems. Instead, subscribers purchase a portion of the power produced from the community solar gardens. This structure allows everyone to participate in sustainability efforts.

Brett Collins, Director of Planning and Development, South Suburban Parks and Recreation, said, “South Suburban Parks and Recreation is proud to be part of the new solar community garden.”

He further said, “By being a subscriber to the community garden, we are able to know what our energy costs will be, anticipate saving on energy costs, are using renewable energy and are doing our part to be a more sustainable organization per our Strategic and Master Plans.”

South Suburban Parks and Recreation is a large special district serving more than 155,000 residents in six municipalities located south of Denver, Colorado.

The six Colorado community solar gardens are expected to generate 23,829,000 kWh of clean energy annually, which could power 2,213 homes. The six projects offset the environmental impact of 1,995,493 gallons of gasoline or nearly 3,797 cars each year.

Stanley Chin, who is the President and CEO of Greenskies and Clean Focus Group, said, “We are excited to energize one of the largest solar gardens in Colorado. They democratize solar by allowing customers who might not have been candidates for solar to adopt renewable energy and save money.”

He said that these projects complement their large portfolio of commercial, small utility, and community solar projects. “We look forward to a long relationship with the subscribers over the lifetime of the projects,” Chin added.
