Both companies have been negotiating the partnership since October. Evolution Solar President Robert Hines said on Thursday that the alliance with Solar-Nomics will significantly expand EVSO’s market position.

"Our partnership with Solar-Nomics is going to drastically increase the number and scope of solar energy projects that EVSO is able to undertake," Hines said. "They have the expertise and experience necessary to perform analysis and feasibility studies on practically any solar energy project in the country. With Solar-Nomics’ help, the scope of our mission will essentially be limited only by our imagination."
