SACRAMENTO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 24, 2022 / SPI Energy Co., Ltd., (NASDAQ:SPI) (the "Company"), a global renewable energy company and provider of solar storage and electric vehicle (EV) solutions for business, residential, government, logistics and utility customers, today announced its SPI Solar division has begun development for a 7.2MWac/8.39MWdc community solar project on 34 acres in Southern California.

"This is another great utility-scale project that further strengthens our growing market share in California, one of the leading renewables markets in the US and home to our company," said Xiaofeng Denton Peng, Chairman and CEO of SPI Energy. "California is an inherently sustainable market, underpinned by a growing economy and appetite for energy with well-defined clean energy targets.
