Energy, LLC

Rockhouse Mountain Energy, LLC is a company involved in project development of alternative energy. It is involved in two areas; solar energy and wave energy. For solar energy development, it is acting as general contractor and a leasing company of solar photo voltaic (PV) arrays on commercial and institutional properties. It partners with an experienced installer in the Northeast (www.RossSolarGroup.com) and takes advantage of the tax incentives of the Federal Government and the Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) programs of various state governments. For the wave energy development, it uses devices designed and manufactured by Ocean Power Technologies, Inc.

It is in the midst of developing two wave energy projects in Ireland:
1. A 5 MW demonstration project off the coast of County Clare to begin deployment in 2014. This project is meant to demonstrate the survivability, the operations and maintenance requirements, and the financial feasibility of a OPT wave farm.

2. A 500 MW project also off the coast of County Clare. This project is meant to satisfy Ireland’s energy goal of 500 MW of wave energy by 2020. It will begin deployment in 2016.
