Standard Solar expands in Colo.

Rockville solar energy company Standard Solar Inc. is expanding its partnership with a Denver-based Pivot Energy to co-develop solar electricity sites in Colorado.

It announced Tuesday it is working to develop five more community solar sites, totaling about 8.9 megawatts.

Community solar facilities are shared by subscribers who receive credit on their electricity bills for the power produced by the facility.

Standard Solar will finance, own and maintain the facilities that Pivot Energy will develop and construct.

Pivot Energy will handle customer enrollment and subscriptions.

The first two projects in the expanded portfolio will begin construction at the end of summer, Standard Solar said in a news release. All five projects are expected to be completed by summer of next year.
