Headquartered in Warwick, Rhode Island, Southern Sky is the region’s leading renewable energy developer.

The five projects in the portfolio include brownfield, landfill, and greenfield projects and are located in the towns of Warwick, Cranston and Johnston in central Rhode Island. When completed, the projects will generate local, clean solar power, contribute to the state’s Clean Energy Portfolio and reduce energy costs significantly.

The communities will also reap environmental benefits from repurposing unusable landfills into productive renewable energy farms.

Southern Sky vice president Lindsay McGovern said: “When we work with Conti Solar on a project, they work as a value-add partner that seeks to resolve issues and streamline projects’ costs to benefit stakeholders. They excel at completing high performance solar systems and we value the experience and deep technical knowledge they bring to projects.”

Solar landfill and brownfield projects require a greater level of expertise to ensure sites are safely managed and work is executed and documented to specifications. Both Southern Sky and Conti Solar are known for their dedication to completing high quality solar projects that meet strict requirements.

Conti Solar chief commercial officer Eric Millard said: “We share Southern Sky’s quality-driven application toward solar project development and installation. We are very proud to work with them on these solar projects that are helping Rhode Island meet their 1,000 megawatts by 2020 clean energy goal.”
