GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) report that utility-scale solar installations accounted for 53% of all installed PV in the first half of 2016. In addition, more solar capacity – 7.8 GW – is expected to come online in the second half of this year than has ever come online in a single year. See full article at Solar Industry magazine.
The company announced today the appointment of Larry DeVore as President of Construction Innovations LLC. Larry has been the active leader of the utility scale solar group from the initial solar projects and has been one of the main driving forces behind CI’s success in this market segment. Larry holds a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of North Dakota, and is a registered professional engineer. The transition will be seamless and CI solar team members should experience little if any change in their roles and responsibilities.
