Altus Power America completed the acquisition of a 2.5-MW operating solar project in Charlotte, Vermont. The acquired project generates approximately 3 million kWh of electricity annually. This project sells energy to VEPP, Inc, a not-for-profit Vermont Corporation that administers two of Vermont’s Renewable Energy Programs under contract with the Vermont Public Utility Commission.
“We are pleased to add this operating asset to our growing national portfolio of distributed generation solar assets. Altus Power’s reputation for providing sellers with competitive prices and transaction certainty has significantly increased our transaction pipeline,” said Gregg Felton, Managing Partner of Altus Power.
Altus Power’s portfolio includes over 170 total solar assets, including four operating assets in Vermont.
“This transaction highlights Altus’ structuring flexibility; in particular, we were able to satisfy the seller’s preference to exit its equity position in a taxable C-Corporation. We always endeavor to be creative with regards to structure in an effort to be accommodating to our partners,” said Abhi Parmar, Director at Altus Power.
“Altus Power was a great partner in this transaction and proved to be not only highly competent but also both commercial and efficient in their approach,” said Denis Harvie, President of the selling entity.
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.
