According to one Target executive: In 2011, Greenskies partnered with Target to help support the expansion of Target's solar portfolio. Greenskies proved invaluable in helping navigate the extremely competitive incentive process ultimately ensuring that Target succeeded in obtaining incentives for 100% of their applications. In addition, Greenskies offered exceptional turnkey services including engineering, procurement and installation of three projects in 2011 and will assist in the completion of an additional two installations in early 2012. Most impressively, when these projects faced increased risk due to unexpected supply change issues, Greenskies stepped up, offering to obtain and store necessary replacement equipment for the duration of the ten-year project at no cost to Target. Greenskies has exemplified excellence in strategic planning, execution and creative problem solving in the face of adversity making them a preferred provider of Target's solar investments.
