Power Energy Corporation, a subsidiary of Power Corporation of Canada, has bought developer and asset manager Nautilus Solar Energy from management shareholders and minority shareholder Virgo Investment Group for an undisclosed sum.
New-Jersey based Nautilus acquires, develops, finances, owns and manages solar assets across the US and has invested more than US$1 billion in capital since launching in 2006. California private equity investment firm Virgo Investment Group acquired a minority stake in the company in 2015.
Nautilus will retain its current management team. Jim Rice and Laura Stern will remain co-CEOs and Jeffrey Cheng president.
Rice said in a release that "PEC's acquisition will not only provide Nautilus with competitive capital, but also the capabilities to accelerate growth to achieve greater scale in the market".
In mid-June, Nautilus completed the first of three community solar projects in New York state.
