SAN DIEGO, /PRNewswire/ -- Reno Contracting announced today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Envision Solar, a leading sustainable infrastructure designer and developer deploying clean energy systems globally. Under the alliance, Reno will construct Envision's Solar Tree® integrated solar parking arrays, including EnvisionTrak™ tracking technology and CleanCharge™ system-integrated charging stations for electric vehicles, in locations throughout the southwest United States. Plans call for a first project during Q2 2011, followed by an accelerated multi-location rollout at corporate and commercial campuses through this year and beyond.

Envision's Solar Tree® with integrated EnvisionTrak™ and CleanCharge™ systems together comprise a highly engineered parking area solar array charging system that is 20 to 25% more productive than conventional fixed solar photovoltaic systems. This increase is achieved by incorporating hybrid multi - access tracking, which enables the solar panels to follow the sun throughout the day. Energy from the panels will be used to charge electric vehicles or delivered to the power grid. Feeding all excess solar energy back into the power grid supports the State of California's mandate of reaching 33% renewable energy by 2020.

Under the agreement, Reno Contracting will assist Envision in refining procurement of project materials; logistics for fabrication and delivery; entitlement and permitting; master scheduling; pricing; construction management and other construction related services.  The company also will provide its extensive energy efficiency expertise.
