RESCo Energy Partner’s Up with Goldfield Solar to Tackle Caribbean Market

MISSISSAUGA, ON, CANADA, MAY 8, 2014 – RESCo Energy Inc., a solar EPC based in Ontario has joined forces with Goldfield Solar to drive the development of solar arrays in the Caribbean. RESCo and Goldfield have been actively working with developers, building owners and the local utility in Barbados to get the first set of projects into construction.

Goldfield Solar, a solar EPC based in Barbados and led by former RESCo employee Terrence Haynes recognized the opportunity in the Caribbean solar market and sought RESCo’s partnership late last year to see these opportunities develop. “There is an incredible appetite for solar in the Islands, but also a historic challenge in the lack of bankable partners that will build and operate projects”, according to Mr. Haynes.

Fidel Reijerse, President of RESCo Energy, says “RESCo had been looking for an opportunity to expand outside of Ontario and this joint venture with Goldfield Solar seemed like a perfect opportunity. We have had the pleasure of working closely with Terrence over the past few years and we are confident in his ability to represent RESCo and deliver the high-quality solar systems that our Ontario clients are used to seeing from us.”
