Galehead Development, an independent Boston-based energy development platform, announced it has completed its scope on the joint development of a utility scale solar project with Clearway Energy. Clearway is one of the largest developers and owner-operators of utility-scale wind and solar across the United States.
Galehead identified the project as part of a 2017 market development strategy. The company deployed its LandCommand™ software to identify an optimal combination of solar resource, suitable land and interconnection capacity. Clearway began its investment in the project under a development services agreement with Galehead in 2018. The nationwide renewable IPP owns the project and will manage all remaining development through to commercial operations.
“Galehead is proud that our end-product is the development pipeline for industry leaders like Clearway,” said Patrick Martin, COO. “This project is one of the earliest demonstrations of LandCommand™ market intelligence and project origination capabilities.”
“The efficiencies of LandCommand™ allow Galehead to make unparalleled investments in educating and preparing landowners for solar contracts,” added John Clifford, CRO.
When completed, the 100 MWac project will produce cost-effective clean energy in the MISO energy market.
