Coronal-Panasonic invest in solar PV EPC Blue Oak Energy

According to Marathon Capital, Blue Oak Energy received a joint investment from Panasonic Eco Solutions and Coronal Group. Blue Oak Energy is a design, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company focused exclusively on solar PV systems. Coronal and Panasonic previously established an exclusive strategic relationship to jointly develop, finance and operate commercial and utility scale solar assets (Coronal-Panasonic).

Blue Oak EnergyHeadquartered in Davis, Calif., Blue Oak Energy has engineered and constructed solar electric systems on over 600 distinct locations across more than 30 states in the U.S. and several international locations totaling over 1 GW.

This strategic investment will allow Blue Oak Energy to continue business development as a stand-alone entity while supplementing Panasonic’s EPC capability. Blue Oak Energy will increase Panasonic’s engineering and construction management capabilities, which will widen the breadth of the Coronal-Panasonic solar delivery solution platform.

“We are excited to have made this investment in a world-class renewable engineering firm. Panasonic is a Blue Oak Energy customer and pleased to support their growth and commitment to meeting increasing market demand,” said Jamie Evans, head of Panasonic Eco Solutions in the U.S.

As the exclusive financial buy-side advisor for Coronal-Panasonic on the transaction, Marathon Capital assisted in the evaluation of strategic options as the partnership explored expanding its EPC capabilities in the North American marketplace.

“The investment in Blue Oak Energy augments a proven and resourceful engineering platform with full EPC capability and financial support. Coronal-Panasonic will enjoy more fully integrated benefits that come from having a strategic relationship with Blue Oak Energy,” said Terry Grant, Managing Director of Marathon Capital.

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.
