MINEOLA, N.Y., Feb. 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 it has received funding for a new 250kw solar system to be installed in Pennsylvania.

Ezra Green, CEO of Clear Skies Solar, commented, "We are pleased to announce that we will now be moving forward into the final engineering phase of this project.  This project is a rooftop mounted system that we hope to start in the next four weeks, along with our other pre-announced systems." He continued, "We at CSS are very pleased at the overall progress we have been making these past few months under our new structure and focus on the sub-300kw sector for commercial and residential installations.  With new funding available for our other sub-500kw systems, we will be able to move forward and execute on our smaller commercial backlog of projects, an important step that we expect will bring consistency to our cash flow requirements in conjunction with our goals for 2011."
