HERO Solar announces solar interconnect agreement with Progress Energy Florida

Progress Energy Florida HERO LLC Solar

Hamilton Energy Resource Opportunities (HERO) LLC Solar has announced it has entered into an interconnect agreement with Progress Energy Florida for a 70 MW solar farm in Hamilton County, Fla. The companies entered the agreement after the completion of an interconnection study process.

HERO Managing Director of Development Jack Levine commented on the start of construction, saying there are currently regulatory barriers that “do not allow us to recognize the alternative energy and therefore have impeded the ability for the project to be adequately funded.”

He added, however, that the project is “ideal for the right tax equity partner or a company looking go expand their strategic footprint in the United States.”
