Enertis Norteamerica´s team under Enertis, a global firm specializing in the provision of consulting services, engineering and quality assurance services in international renewable energy projects has supported Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) in the purchase of a photovoltaic projects portfolio exceeding 200 MW, comprised of 143 commercial and industrial facilities (C & I), located in four states of the East Coast of the USA.
The installed power capacity of these assets ranges between 50 kW and up to 17 MW
Enertis has supported Goldman Sachs as an Independent Engineer with the completion of a due diligence for the acquisition of a project portfolio comprising several types of facilities, on roofs, garages and on ground among others.The installed power capacity of these assets ranges between 50 kW and up to 17 MW and electricity generated is distributed mainly to schools, universities, and also to commercial and industrial facilities. The scope of works carried out by the Enertis team included engineering reviews, estimates of energy production, performance analysis and visits to the facilities, among others.
With two offices in the United States, San Francisco and Jersey City, Enertis Norteamerica team has worked, only in the first half of the year, in more than 100 due diligences.
“We are pleased to be given the opportunity to support GSAM with our experience in this and other projects,” Iñaki Herrero, head of Enertis Norteamerica said.
Solar supplies 10 million homes in the US
According to a study by the Frontier Group, solar energy is expanding rapidly in the US, which now has more than 53 GW of installed photovoltaic (PV) solar capacity, enough to supply 10.1 million homes in the United States and 26 times the installed capacity at the end of 2010.
20 cities have more than 2 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity: more solar energy than what had been installed in the whole country by the end of 2010
The document reveals that by the end of 2017, 20 cities – representing only 0.1 percent of the US land area – accounted for more than 4 percent of the country’s photovoltaic solar capacity.
These 20 cities have more than 2 GW of photovoltaic solar energy capacity: more solar energy than what had been installed in the whole country by the end of 2010.
The leaders in solar capacity per capita per census region include Honolulu in the Pacific region, Las Vegas in the mountainous region, Indianapolis in the north central region, San Antonio in the south-central region, Washington, DC, in the South Atlantic region and Burlington, Vermont, in the northeast region.
