iSun, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISUN) (“iSun”), a leading solar energy and clean mobility infrastructure company with 50 years of construction experience in solar, electrical and data services, today, in conjunction with Earth Day, announced a progress update regarding its partnership with GreenSeed Investors LLC and its affiliates, including GreenBond Advisors LLC (“GreenBond affiliates”), which aims to enhance iSun’s access to the growing Green Bond segment of the fixed income market by expanding its Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (“EPC”) bid pipeline and grow its base of recurring revenue and earnings.
GreenBond affiliates are building on existing indications of interest from leading institutional investors to proceed with investment in an investment grade private placement offering of $350 million of Green Bonds to fund the construction of qualified solar projects.
GreenBond affiliates are now reviewing or negotiating the purchase of over 4,000 MW of utility-scale solar projects at various stages of development which can be constructed using proceeds from its Green Bond offering.
iSun’s recent entry in the utility-scale solar EPC market uniquely positions iSun to capitalize on these future opportunities.
iSun will own a minority interest in the solar projects it constructs for the partnership.
“We remain excited about the growth opportunities presented through our partnership with GreenBond Advisors and GreenSeed Investors and are pleased to be able to announce this important update on Earth Day, as iSun supports the transition from dirty energy to clean energy,” said Jeffrey Peck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iSun. “The main goals of our partnership are to increase our solar EPC pipeline and to provide asset ownership opportunities to increase our recurring revenue stream. We are confident that the combination of our enhanced utility solar capabilities with GreenBond Advisors’ project pipeline and financing commitments positions us well for meaningful results in the coming quarters.”
“We are pleased to celebrate Earth Day and the one-year anniversary of our partnership with iSun by announcing significant progress in the achievement of our joint corporate objectives,” said William Dale, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GreenBond Advisors, LLC and GreenSeed Investors, LLC. “Over the past year we have successfully developed a platform and received indications of interest from leading institutional investors to proceed with investment in an investment grade private placement offering of $350 million of Green Bonds to fund the construction of qualified solar projects. Additionally, our affiliate companies have built teams of experts in the renewable energy project development and procurement field and are now reviewing or negotiating the purchase of over 4,000 MW of utility scale solar projects. We maintain a strong discipline in the acquisition of solar projects to ensure long-term profitability for our investors in Solar Project Partners, the passive holding company which will own developed solar projects with our partners. iSun’s commitment to growing their utility scale solar EPC business will help accelerate our business model and provide quality, investment grade Green Bonds for the deep pool of institutional investors seeking to expand their investment in this rapidly growing asset class.”
