One of the largest owners of commercial solar projects, Rockville-based Standard Solar purchased its first project in Idaho from True Green Capital Management.

Located in Mountain Home, Idaho, the solar project generates 28.5 megawatt (MW) of electricity. Standard Solar said the project offsets 4.3 million gallons of gasoline consumed and the charging of 4.7 million smartphones.

The company is fresh off acquiring and funding projects in December and November in Oregon and Maryland, respectively.

“We are actively pursuing growth opportunities through acquisition of existing and operating solar projects and adding the Mountain Home project to our asset base is a significant milestone for Standard Solar,” said Mike Streams, Standard Solar’s Chief Development Officer. “We are on track for 2022 to be our best year yet.”

Standard Solar controls over 200 commercial and community solar and solar projects intended for energy storage. The company controls 20 projects throughout D.C. in partnership with the District of Columbia Government.

In Montgomery County, Standard Solar controls commercial projects, the Kaiser Shady Grove Carport and Rooftop, DANAC Corporate Headquarters, and Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE: FRT) Pike & Rose Parking Garage.
