Pacific Blue Energy Corp., a solar energy company and developer of renewable energy projects, today announced its partnership with Siliken Renewable Energy to build the Sunshine Solar Farm near Flagstaff, Arizona.
The companies will submit a bid to a local utility to develop a 15 MW solar farm on the 154.3-acres site, which can support up to 20 MW of solar electricity generation.
Siliken has designed and built some of the world’s largest photovoltaic (PV) solar farms, earning its reputation as a leading manufacturer of PV modules for stand-alone and grid-connected installations for residential and commercial projects.
The collaboration with Pacific Blue gives Siliken the opportunity to strengthen its position in the U.S. marketplace.
“Siliken has been looking to expand its presence in the U.S. and has identified PBEC as the perfect partner to make this happen,” Pacific Blue CEO Joel Franklin stated in the press release. “We are thrilled to have Siliken join our development team to fulfill our vision for the Sunshine Solar Farm.”
Kevin Davies, director of operations of Siliken, said the partnership with Pacific Blue is in-line with Siliken’s expansion and diversification goals.
“As one of the preferred companies in the PV industry, Siliken is making a strategic effort to diversify our activities and further commit to new sources of renewable energy, including solar power,” Davies stated. “Partnering with companies like PBEC helps us to meet our goals to expand in the United States and it opens the door for us to develop more PV solar projects in the Southwest.”
