The projects in the portfolio are located in 10 states: California, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Virginia. Many of the projects are already completed and energized, while the remainder are in development and scheduled for energization in 2022.
ForeFront Power will continue to work on customer relationships across the entire portfolio and provide customers and co-sponsor with energy asset management services.
“This equity partnership is another indication of strong market momentum for distributed solar generation in the U.S.,” said Bryan Eckstein, ForeFront Power’s Vice President, Project Finance & Business Development. “Partnering with Hannon Armstrong accelerates ForeFront Power’s development pipeline by providing an additional source of capital for our climate change solutions that deliver customer savings.”
“We are pleased to be an equity capital partner with ForeFront Power and support the continued expansion of their C&I solar business across the U.S.,” said Manny Haile-Mariam, Hannon Armstrong’s Managing Director, Structured Investments Team Lead.
“This high-quality portfolio of behind-the-meter solar projects further diversifies our investment in the distributed generation market, which is critical for reducing carbon emissions and strengthening energy security and resilience at the same time.”
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 discuss 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.
