“Nevada has a tremendous opportunity to create a sustainable green collar economy, and these projects are a great example of the potential for solar in Nevada,” said Scott Gerz, Director of Business Development at CleanPath Renewables.

Funding for the projects is being supplied by rebates from NV Energy, federal tax incentives and grid tariff payments. Construction on the first of the installations is due to start in October 2010.
