PUEBLO, Colorado (March 1, 2020)
Black Hills Energy has announced the partners it has selected to supply an additional 2.5 megawatts of new community solar garden capacity in Southern Colorado. The new projects include a 2 megawatt facility and a separate 500-kilowatt garden dedicated entirely to serving low-income customers, according to Black Hills. The winning, lowest cost bids for the projects came from Pivot Energy and Grid Alternatives, according to the utility.
“We’re thrilled to be one of the partners selected to contribute to Black Hills Energy’s growing portfolio of carbon-free electricity sources,” said Jon Sullivan, Senior Vice President of project development for Pivot Energy. “Through this award, we are able to deepen our commitment to southern Colorado’s communities beyond just providing clean energy and support its student’s continued education. We look forward to working with Black Hills Energy and the local communities on more projects like this in the future.”
