CleanCapital announced today its final acquisition of 2019, a 16.5 megawatt portfolio consisting of seven operating solar projects. CleanCapital’s acquisitions last year totaled 105 MW, more than doubling the company’s cumulative acquisitions of prior years.
The portfolio, dubbed “Liberty,” is made up of projects located in Connecticut and Massachusetts with commercial operations dates (“OD) ranging from December 2013 to January 2016. CleanCapital now manages over 180 MW of renewable power generation comprised of more than 100 sites in 12 states.
This is the fifth in a series of acquisitions made through CleanCapital’s partnership with CarVal Investors, illustrating CleanCapital’s effective execution on the aggregation strategy launched in 2018. The four acquisitions made prior to Liberty (Atlantic, Mammoth, Denali, and Olympic), together with this portfolio represent over $300 million in renewable energy investment. The resulting CarVal/CleanCapital portfolio—129 MW in total, located across seven states—is one of the most diversified portfolios in the distributed generation market.
“The acquisition of the Liberty solar portfolio is a new high water mark for CleanCapital, pushing our total acquisitions to over $500 million,” said Thomas Byrne, CEO of CleanCapital. “We set out to accelerate investment in clean energy, and this transaction underscores the way that our unique, technology-based approach is moving the industry forward.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
