David Taggart, president and COO of Belectric said,  “For the past 18 months, the Belectric Team has worked closely with SMUD, Sacramento County and local land owners to develop this project, which clearly demonstrates the competitiveness of Belectric’s integrated thin film PV system design. The installation of these power plants will create local jobs and generate clean power for the Sacramento region. Based on the great experience we have had with both Constellation and Smart Energy, we look forward to further collaboration.”
