DENVER, CO--(NewMediaWire - Jun 15, 2016) - Blue Diamond Ventures, Inc. (OTC PINK: BLDV) -- Joshua Brainin Alper, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Diamond Ventures, Inc., just took control of Blue Diamond in mid-March of this year and has already executed a strategic reorganization plan in an effort to optimize the company's most recent acquisitions for definable projects and revenues.
"I have completed the review and restructure of all of the company's efforts and involvements," Mr. Alper stated, "and we have specific business plans for both Blue Diamond Consulting LLC and United Sustainable Technologies LLC, the two wholly owned subsidiaries of BLDV.
"Today we generate about 20% of our revenue in the Cannabis Industry, plus an additional 40% in Project/Construction Management, and 40% in the Alternative Energy Sector," said Alper. "By the end of 2017 we expect the core mix to be 50% Cannabis and 50% Alternative Energy Projects."
Blue Diamond Consulting announces a 36 month 20 MW Shared Solar Initiative, in Western New York, with Buffalo, NY acting as the center of operations. The initiative will be comprised of a number of projects across Western NY, with no single project being larger than 5 MW. The initiative is a collaboration between, an approved solar contractor in NY State, 510 Nano LLC, a Solar Engineering and Technology Provider, Blue Diamond Consulting LLC, with the Pyramid Brokerage Group acting as the exclusive real estate partner for site acquisition and leasing.
- Community Shared Energy Initiative - 3-Year - $50 Million - 20 MW of Shared Solar Projects
- COMMUNITY SOLAR PROJECTS WILL BE BUILT BY A SINGLE PURPOSE LLC's, OWNED BY INVESTORS IN A SHARED ENERGY FUND
- PROGRAM LEVERAGES INCENTIVES FROM UTILITIES AND FEDERAL TAX CREDITS TO MAXIMIZE RETURNS FOR ALL STAKEHOLDERS
The overall expected budget is $50 Million of project cost over the 36-month plan. "This gives us multiple construction seasons and economies of scale that will drive the profitability of the project," said Jonathan B. Alper, Principle and Manager of Blue Diamond Consulting. "We expect there to be approximately seven separate projects. This allows us the time to define the financial incentives and review new solar technologies that may reduce both cost and required land footprint; too often these projects are designed on less than reasonable schedules, and in the end that compromises the overall quality and profitability achieved." Blue Diamond Consulting will receive an estimated $1.2 Million in fees over the 3-year project.
