Please don't take this the wrong way, but if I could offer some constructive criticism, I recommend you alter your post to indicate what value you bring to the equation (i.e. funding, experience, connections, vision). I don't see it in your statement.
A consultant may be attracted simply to make some money, but I think you may find it difficult to find a partner. If you don't have experience and don't know where to start, a potential partner is likely to think that they will have to carry the burden of getting the business up and running, and therefore, why would they need or want to partner with you.
Again, I'm not trying to be condescending or cruel, just trying to help you package your approach in a different manner so you can achieve your goal.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for the advice. Well taken. I have an Engineering background in Fiber Optics. Fiber optics uses similar technology to PV for light detection. So the basic technical background is the same. Unfortunately, however, I have no background in renewables or power generation. I have an investor who is very excited about renewable energy and we believe that this market is just starting to emerge. I am looking for the right person to "get us going". I have the education and the industrial background to learn quickly. If there is someone out there with the know-how but is lacking the investment that would be the ideal scenario for a partnership or consultancy in our view.
Separate from the opportunity that Biz4Brains is offering, you may want to look at doing a posting on PartnerUp.com. There you can enter your profile, your business opportunity and what you are looking for in a partner.
All the Best,
Thank you Doug.

How big is your project? How much money is your investor putting into the deal?

I want to get into Solar Farming in the US: to generate electricity and sell it to the power companies. But have no idea where to start etc. Looking for a knowledgeable consultant or someone experienced who is willing to partner. A business plan example woudl be great if you can provide.
