Jonathan Jaffrey, chairman and CEO of Coronal Group, said: “This acquisition will accelerate our fast-growing platform and strengthen our position as an integrated solar energy solution provider for customers with utility-scale projects and across markets in the solar industry. In addition to an extensive pipeline of both near-term and development-stage projects, we are gaining a deeply experienced and successful development team that is committed to fueling the growth of our utility-scale portfolio in North America.”

HelioSage has been an active player in terms of dealing with other companies — securing more than 400MW worth of agreements with groups such as Duke Energy, Georgia Power Company, the Tennessee Valley Authority and more.

Chris Walmsley, president of CDS, said: “HelioSage has worked tirelessly to establish a reputation and a track record as a well-respected leader in large-scale solar development. Joining a team the caliber of Coronal-Panasonic represents the culmination of years of hard work – but what is most exciting to all of us is our future together.”

Jamie Evans, managing director of Eco Solutions for Panasonic, added: “Panasonic is excited to have HelioSage joining the Coronal-Panasonic team. The HelioSage team brings an impressive skill set and a culture that will be very complementary to the Coronal-Panasonic platform.  Collectively, we are well-positioned to execute a significant project pipeline throughout North America in the near term.”
