Skyline Solar, a manufacturer of High Gain Solar CPV arrays for the commercial, industrial, government and utility markets, announced that the company has won a $1.85 million contract from the Department of Defense (DoD) and has since broken ground on the construction of Skyline Solar X14 CPV power plants at two domestic military sites.

Skyline Solar was awarded the contract in a competitive process under the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), a program intended to identify technologies that solve key DoD needs and have the highest potential for widespread deployment. The projects will allow Skyline Solar to demonstrate the Skyline X14 System’s performance in hot sunny climates, while also validating its field upgradability and rapid system deployment capability—key considerations in Skyline Solar being awarded the contract.
