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.
Now in its sixth successful year, Solar & Storage Finance USA is the only event which looks at raising capital for solar, storage and collocated solar and storage projects in the USA. The conference will help delegates understand how providers are evolving propositions for storage and how they can access capital for standalone solar or storage, and co-located projects. Meet debt providers, funders, utilities, corporate off takers and blue chip energy firms with capital to invest and developers with credible pipelines.
