Redeux Energy Partners launches, eyes GWs of co-located solar, storage

Redeux Energy Partners, a developer of utility-scale, clean energy projects, today unveiled additional details about its capital backing, operations and plans to develop gigawatts of renewable energy and storage assets. The funding was closed in late 2020, led by a combination of Cathexis Holdings and Thoroughbred Holdings. The Company’s uses of the funding include the continued development of over a gigawatt of projects, land acquisition, interconnection filings, co-development partnerships, project acquisitions and continued expansion of its platform.

The plan. Redeux is executing a multi-state development plan, working with landowners to enhance their property value with clean energy solutions that can be co-located with existing farming, timber, ranching and resource extraction operations. In addition to traditional “greenfield” project development, Redeux partners with fossil generators and resource suppliers to transition to clean energy solutions while re-using existing electric grid resources and rights, maintaining grid reliability and managing the liabilities of legacy operations.

This strategy has resonated not only with investors, but also with state and local economic development teams as well as some of the largest mining operators in the country in active discussions with Redeux. The company believes its approach can optimize land use and re-use, a growing concern with the proliferation of utility-scale energy projects on farmland, other virgin ground and natural habitat across the country.

“We are grateful for the capital support from Cathexis and Thoroughbred, and the shared vision to scale our Company,” said Rob Masinter, COO of Redeux. “Their financial commitment is a testament to the vision, team and early progress the Company has achieved. We are now accelerating expansion of our pipeline and related hiring as we continue to develop world-class projects on the vast land package our team is securing over six states in the MISO, ERCOT and SEEM energy markets.”

Redeux’s leadership team brings decades and gigawatts of experience in solar and storage project development, offtake origination, financing, construction and renewable and thermal plant operations. The company has added talent from leading renewable industry players including AES, Invenergy, Lightsource BP, NARENCO, E3 and KPMG, and has assembled a land team from Noble, Anadarko, Crescent Point Energy and other top-tier energy companies.
Redeux’s lead financial sponsors include Cathexis Holdings LP, a multi-billion-dollar private equity investor with significant real estate holdings, and Thoroughbred Holdings, a private equity investor and operator focused on energy, infrastructure and natural resources assets.

“We are confident that Redeux will evolve into one of the key players delivering utility-scale, clean energy projects during the multi-decade energy transition that is currently underway,” said William Harrison, CEO of Cathexis Holdings LP. “Cathexis backs teams with experienced leadership, agility, systematic approaches to scale and the capability to execute – all traits we see in Redeux’s vision and platform.”

The US and other leading nations are currently pursuing a multi-trillion-dollar, multi-decade transition to cleaner sources of energy generation to power electrification of the industrial and transportation sectors. Redeux brings the talent, expertise and mix of both greenfield and brownfield development strategies to cost-effectively and efficiently site, permit and interconnect reliable, utility-scale, renewable energy projects.

“With a fully-funded platform to deliver a Gigawatt-scale, nationwide, renewable generation and energy storage project pipeline, Redeux is well-positioned to help fuel this once-in-a-generation energy transition,” Masinter concluded.

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.
