The financial flexibility will allow Pivot to keep pursuing its development strategy across its commercial and community solar portfolio.

Mark Domine, managing director, head of originations at Fundamental Renewables, said: “We are excited to forge this relationship with Pivot Energy to expand their already robust portfolio, particularly in community solar projects that will have a significant impact in making solar energy more accessible throughout the country.”

Within its community solar projects, Pivot Energy operates in Colorado – where it recently started the development of a 41MW project for utility Xcel Energy – Illinois, New York and Minnesota.

Fundamental Renewables is the renewable and clean energy investment arm of Fundamental Advisors LP, which financed a US$250 million existing credit facility earlier in the year for US solar developer Birch Creek Development.
