BOULDER, Colo., April 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AlsoEnergy today announced that its software and solutions products will serve as the monitoring and billing technology platform for international solar power projects developed, financed and operated by Main Street Power, the nation's fastest-growing solar developer, and Morgan Stanley, one of the world's largest financial institutions.
The latest project, dedicated on Earth Day by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper at the San Carlos Correctional Facility in Pueblo, is a 390 kW distributed solar photovoltaic installation on four state correctional facilities.
"This project helps further position Colorado as the nation's clean energy leader," said Hickenlooper. "It also shows the value of creative thinking and collaboration to promote renewable energy, cut red tape and create jobs."
