Primoris Services Corporation Announces Solar Investment and Renewable EPC Awards

DALLAS, Aug. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Primoris Services Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select:PRIM) (“Primoris” or “Company”) today announced a $22 million investment to build, own, and operate solar power systems for a California School District.  In addition, Primoris Renewable Energy, part of the Power, Industrial, & Engineering segment, was awarded three contracts to provide engineering, procurement, and/or construction services (“EPC”) for solar power systems located in Southern California.

  • BW Primoris, part of the Civil segment, is investing approximately $22 million to acquire a portfolio of solar projects in a California School District from the developers, Spear Point Energy, LLC, and PFMG Solar, LLC.  This investment amount includes the cost of Primoris Renewable Energy’s EPC work on the projects.  The solar projects are expected to generate a 25-year recurring revenue stream from the District’s signed power purchase agreement. As an investment in a renewable energy project, the solar assets should provide Primoris with investment tax credits valued at over $5 million.
  • Primoris Renewable Energy was awarded three contracts, valued at approximately $25 million, to engineer, procure, and/or construct solar power systems by Spear Point Energy, LLC, and PFMG Solar, LLC, who develop solar projects for utilities, government, and commercial customers. The work will be spread across twenty-three sites and will have a total solar generating capacity of approximately 7.6 megawatts. The two external contracts are valued at approximately $8 million.  The work for the Primoris-owned facilities will be recognized as intercompany revenue.
  • Work is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2017 and to be completed in the first quarter of 2018.
