PV Solar-Generated Power Defined:

PV solar-generated power is universally recognized as one of the most environmentally friendly technologies for power generation today. Combining soundless operations in an environment where more than 90% of the natural landscape survives and thrives after project construction, solar has been called the perfect renewable energy source. Solar modules or panels produce direct current (DC) electrical energy from sunlight – and daylight. Inverter systems convert the DC into alternating current (AC) which is fed into the public power system or grid. The generated power is paid for at a per kilowatt-hour (kWh) rate according to the applicable feed-in-tariff (FiT) and energy rates.

About RainChief:

RainChief is a Canadian based independent power producer that is currently engaged in the development of PV photovoltaic solar energy installation projects in Italy and the European Union. RainChief and partners have the combined capabilities to manage and direct all key steps in the selection, authorization, financing, development and operations of PV solar power projects. Key operation partners, plus project suppliers and contractors have been identified for all key areas of project development, engineering and construction.
