iSun continues its company expansion now with a minority investment in commercial solar developer Encore Renewable Energy. The investment will accelerate iSun’s C&I business while allowing Encore to expand its geographic reach.
“This partnership reflects the progress we’ve steadily been making against our three-pronged strategy for growth,” said Jeffrey Peck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iSun. “By deepening our long-standing relationship with Encore Renewable Energy, we will gain invaluable insights into new geographic markets which we can use to further advance our C&I strategy. Equally important: we will be strengthening a long-term relationship with a partner whose values and commitment to innovation mirrors ours. Encore’s experience in reclaiming undervalued real estate for clean energy generation and storage, and revitalizing communities with the deployment of agrivoltaic solutions illustrates their understanding of the challenges often associated with getting buy-in for community-scale clean energy development projects, and ultimately reduces barriers for solar adoption. As a Certified B Corporation and a values-driven organization, Encore is a leader in creating a new industry standard. We’re proud to have them as a partner.”
“This new infusion of capital from iSun will allow us to more than double our project development pipeline over the next 12 months,” offered Chad Farrell, CEO and Founder of Encore Renewable Energy. “Deploying additional community-scale solar and solar + storage solutions across the Northeast and other strategic markets supports our ongoing work to accelerate the transition to a robust clean energy economy powered by low cost, carbon-free renewable resources.”
