Under deal, Green Mountain will provide 40 acres of land for the 4MW solar power plant.

Clean Energy Pathways, an alternative and renewable energy solutions company, has selected US-based ESA Renewables as co-developer to provide a turnkey solution.

The solar facility, which will be owned by Clean Energy Pathways and is expected to generate approximately $5.7m in revenue for the company within the first year.

ESA Renewables CEO Jeff Burkett said the initial Green Mountain development can be completed very quickly.

"ESA employs a technique that allows us to build a 4MW solar plant in fewer than eight weeks after we have received permits," said Burkett.

The project is expected to be operational within four to six weeks of breaking ground.
