Would you be part of the solar boom for as for as little as $250,000 per project? Solar investment opportunities are getting better and better with easier access to personal participation. Here is a terrific one, a new solar farm investor program revealed in a press release from Asheville, North Carolina.
Innovative Solar Systems, LLC, is spearheading a plan for diverse investors (all types) to take part in partial ownership of large-scale solar farm projects. All over the nation, the offer is set for as little as $250,000 per project — open to individuals or groups. The early-stage, large-scale solar farm projects are going forward in multiple counties throughout the United States.
Presently one of the largest developers of utility-scale solar farm projects in the Southern United States, Innovative Solar Systems (ISS) is swift to expand (with this new plan) throughout the nation. The press release notes that the company’s new partnership program promotes sharing of profits as a basis for investors to take part and share rewards in the renewable energy boom.
“An investor or financial group would purchase a 1/3 ownership interest in an early stage ISS solar farm project for as little as $250,000 and then realize a notable profit within 12–18 months when the project is deemed construction ready and then sold and signed over to the long-term owner of record that will finance and own the asset after system commissioning.”
It adds: “ISS has a long track record in the solar industry and has developed over 100 commercial and utility-scale solar projects to date while having approximately fifty (50) new projects totaling over 1GW in various stages of development for the 2015 calendar year.”
Sounds like a seasoned, stable company worth partnering with… if you’ve got $250,000 and are looking to invest it in that way.
At this time, the company’s strategy is to expand in the Midwestern and Western US. This expansion comes on the heels of big growth in the Southeast, where it developed the majority of the largest utility-scale solar farm projects to date in this region. The press release continues:
“Developing large-scale solar farm projects can be more complex than building skyscrapers…. For Investor Relations or to learn about any of the current approved and construction ready utility-scale solar farms for sale please contact John E. Green of ISS today at (828)-215-9064.”
On another note, the term “solar farms” has a nice ring to it, and in some cases you can actually see sheep among the solar panels. Modern farming is becoming dual purpose. Simultaneous farming and “solar farming” results in ecological and economic benefits. Farmers can have a continual “solar harvest” with a solar farm.
“Solar Power & Farm Crops Created At The Same Time” profiles Japanese farmer Makoto Takazawa’s farmland in Chiba Prefecture, where he has both solar PV and crops. “He has nearly 350 kW of solar panels mounted on poles 3 meters above ground and has grown crops like cabbages, eggplants, cucumber, taro, peanuts and yams underneath them. Both the solar panels and the food-bearing plants receive enough sunlight to be productive.”
It would be nice if such dual-purpose farms were as widespread in the future as Walmarts are today.
