New York, N.Y. Clear Skies Solar, Inc. (CSS), a developer and installer of solar power solutions, has announced a $5.7-million agreement with Achilles Chondronasios & Co. to develop and construct a 960-kilowatt solar power project in Melia, Larissa, Greece. This marks the company's second Greek project within the last three months, and fourth international project.
"Due to robust government tax incentives, Greece has emerged as a leading market for solar power, and for Clear Skies Solar as we continue to embark on our aggressive international expansion program," said Ezra Green, chairman and CEO of Clear Skies Solar in a statement. "Their current environment of available grants and favorable feed-in tariffs presents a great opportunity for the company, and we fully expect to see an increase in projects within the region," he added.
This contract follows closely on the heels of an $8-million solar energy contract announced in Chitrakoot, Uttar Predesh, India last week, which brings Clear Skies' India-based project portfolio to a total of $28 million.
Clear Skies Solar said it is "aggressively targeting foreign markets where strong governmental support of green technology has created fertile business opportunities."
