Sunvalley Solar Progresses on Green Farm Solar Investment Plan in Southern California

Sunvalley Solar moves forward in the promotion of its Green Farm Solar Investment Plan. The Green Farm Solar Investment Plan leverages incentives from the Federal Government (30% of the project cost as a Federal Tax Cash Grant), the solar rebate program from the Imperial Irrigation District (IID) that provides power and water to local cities and Sunvalley’s own client financing.

The cities of Thermal, Imperial, Coachella, Holtville and others within the IID include over 300 agricultural entities, all ideally suited for the thin-film panel solar power systems offered by Sunvalley Solar. Sunvalley’s Green Farm Solar Investment Plan, enables agricultural customers to ‘go green’ without any cash outlay. Over a period of five years their solar power systems will be completely paid off, with monthly payments lower than their current monthly utility costs. After reviewing proposals from Sunvalley Solar, many agricultural businesses in the area, including Seaview Packing, Crop Production Services, Vessey & Co, Inc, Leja Farms, Milce Sudduth Farms and Prime Food, have signed Letters of Interest requesting a site analysis and a detailed evaluation of the electrical meters, electrical panels, and available land space.

“In addition to our continued promotion of the Green Farm Solar Investment Plan, we are working to successfully renegotiate our existing contracts with Long Life Farms and others. In 2011 the IID will change their solar incentive plan from a one-time lump sum payment to a monthly performance based 5- year plan. The new plan also includes an increase in per Watt incentive. As a result, Sunvalley had to cancel and renegotiate its existing contracts announced in September (see Sunvalley Solar News releases of September 15th). Our progress to date has been quite encouraging with a new signed contract with Long Life Farms and signed contracts with some new customers.. We believe with the new incentive plans, we can offer an even stronger product (equipment, maintenance and financing) to clients in the Imperial Valley area and win more contracts for the year 2011,” said James Zhang, CEO of Sunvalley Solar Inc.
