Infiniti Energy gets creative on five solar projects for Kaplan real estate firm

Infiniti Energy Kaplan project example

Solar power developer and independent power producer Infiniti Energy is developing and constructing five solar projects at sites owned by Kaplan Companies in New Jersey, utilizing three different ownership models: community solar, solar power purchase agreements (PPA), and direct ownership.

“Working with Kaplan on these solar projects has been good for Infiniti Energy to show the three ownership models we work with all provide strong value to real estate firms. Kaplan has chosen to get ahead of a market in which owners and renters are demanding more sustainable living spaces. By showing that these solar ownership models not only provide more sustainable living, but they also make sense financially. Energy rates can be locked in and additional revenue can be generated from previously unused roof space,” said Michael Kushner, Infiniti Energy CEO.

Kaplan Companies is a family-owned real estate firm that has been in business since 1952. The five projects total more than 2 MW. New Energy Equity LLC is a financing partner to Infiniti Energy for the portfolio and Kaplan Community Solar is jointly developed with Nexamp.

Camelot at Bayonne Apartments in Bayonne, N.J., was the first of the five projects to be completed in June 2021, with Camelot at Townekake in Sayreville, NJ completed in December 2021. The other three will be completed and operational by June 2022.

The five projects include:

  • Camelot at Bayonne – 156 kW
  • Camelot at Townelake – 201 kW
  • Gateway at Carteret – 180 kW
  • Merriewold at Highland Park – 308 kW
  • Kaplan Community Solar – 1,189 kW

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.
