The agreement is the result of a joint venture with European EPC firm Plaan Czech, s.r.o. Ranging in size from 3 MW to 5 MW, the installations are funded through a private investment company based in the Czech Republic.
"These projects underscore Premier Power's unparalleled ability to rapidly respond to dynamic economies and shifting renewable energy policies in emerging and established markets around the world. Our previous successes in Eastern Europe - a region few others have been able to effectively penetrate - are now enabling us to capture significant market share in Bulgaria," said Bjorn Persson, executive vice president of European operations at Premier Power. "We look forward to building our presence in Bulgaria as the country aggressively targets its goal of reaching 16 percent renewable power by the year 2020."
Premier Power's project portfolio spans across Europe and North America, with more than 1,000 systems in operation to date. Additional installation locations include France, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Greece, the Czech Republic, and the United States.
Construction on the Bulgaria projects will begin this month. All four systems are scheduled for completion by the end of 2011.
