CleanCapital and Borrego have partnered to construct a 6.7 MW distributed generation solar project in Maine, which is expected to reach commercial operation in 2022. Thanks to Maine’s Net Energy Billing kWh Program, power will be sold to residential off-takers at a fixed discount to the prevailing utility rate for a 20-year term.
“We are excited to be partnering for the first time with Borrego to make renewable energy more accessible to homeowners in Maine,” said Julia Bell, Head of Projects at CleanCapital. “This latest investment—our fourth since announcing a $300 million commitment from Manulife in April—demonstrates CleanCapital’s commitment to advancing the rapid transition of the energy grid.”
“Borrego is partnering with CleanCapital to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy. Together we’re providing homeowners in Maine the opportunity to create a clean energy future by buying their power from a community solar project” said Brendan Neagle, executive vice president of project finance at Borrego. “We’re eager to build our relationship with CleanCapital through this project and plan to continue our partnership into the future.”
CleanCapital’s cumulative acquisitions now total more than $850 million. This is CleanCapital’s first project in Maine, expanding the company’s total acquisitions to more than 230 MW in 19 states.
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.
