MINEOLA, N.Y., March 16, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clear Skies Solar, Inc. (CSS) (OTCBB:CSKH), a full-service renewable energy provider to commercial, industrial and agricultural clients, today announced the planned expansion into California territories.

With the success of the high volume program in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, CSS has decided to open a new office ahead of schedule in Orange County, California serving the entire region from San Diego to Santa Barbara.

"Since our program has been met with much success in New Jersey and as previously discussed, we plan on duplicating our sub-300kw model in key states. Southern California is now a target market for us based on the emerging Renewable Energy Credit's and expanding incentive markets. California is a large demographic area where we have done several high profile installations successfully over the past several years and we look forward to expanding on that experience," said Ezra Green, CEO Clear Skies Solar.

Allen Sosis VP of Sales and Marketing: "We are moving into the So-Cal territory sooner than planned because of the very positive response we have received in the region. We have been pursuing several California projects the past few weeks and we feel the time to move forward is now."

Mr. Green continues: "Additionally, with the expectant Renewable Energy Credit market, California will become a large territory for XTRAX®, patented technology owned by our subsidiary Carbon 612. We look forward to the new opportunities."

The territory CSS has targeted covers 180 cities, population of 11 million, 5 million residences with an overall average income of $61k per year which makes it an ideal market for solar energy.
