CleanCapital Acquires $30M in New Solar Operating Assets: Is Your Project Next?
It’s an exciting time to be in clean energy finance. The solar industry continues to set records and surpass obstacles. On Monday the solar industry faced the challenge of a once-in-a-hundred-year event: a total solar eclipse that took 9 GW of solar offline. Thanks to advancements in grid resiliency, grid operators throughout the nation were able to manage electricity demand throughout the eclipse and ramp solar production back immediately after it passed.
But while the solar industry continues to grow at a record-breaking pace, the flow of capital within the space remains largely stagnant. CleanCapital’s recent acquisitions of operating solar assets totaling nearly $30 million are meeting this challenge head on.

These newly acquired solar projects in Arizona, California, Ohio and Missouri consist of high quality customers including schools, universities, and government facilities.
