Solar Park Initiatives, Inc. (OTCBB: SOPV), a Florida-based solar energy company dedicated to utility and commercial solar park developments in North America, announced that on September 16, 2010 the Company signed a letter of intent with Maple Leaf Renewables Group, Inc. to acquire the assets of the company. Solar Park Initiatives anticipates that the acquisition will be completed within the next 30 days.
David Surette, CEO of Solar Park Initiatives stated, "We are always interested in acquiring assets to strengthen the position of our company. This acquisition will bring into Solar Park Initiatives a significant list of developing project pipeline assets previously being developed by Maple Leaf Renewables, including their relationships and contacts throughout the renewables community. The sites for future installation of solar arrays include the states of Texas and California. There are multiple projects ranging in size from 2Mw up to 100Mw. Additional development work is needed to bring these sites into production and we expect to see ground breaking as early as the fall of 2011. Our ability to quickly seize these types of opportunities is the result of diligent preparation on the part of our management team. The market is moving quickly and we are poised to react for the benefit of our shareholders."
