As an end-to-end project team with experience handling all aspects of a solar development process, New Energy Equity works with the most reputable solar construction companies to complete engineering, permitting, utility interconnections, construction and commissioning of solar transactions. The initial development phase includes identifying the right participants, sourcing land, whether by purchase or lease, and securing the permitting. While in many cases we operate as the originating developer, New Energy Equity also welcomes the opportunity to work with industry and other development partners to collaborate on completing transactions.
New Energy Equity has NABCEP-certified renewable energy engineers, project designers, installers, and master electricians on staff to ensure all technical aspects of solar projects are completed correctly. Our engineering and technical capabilities include staff members skilled in design, PVSyst solar production models, project site CAD layouts, and interconnect design and applications. Our experienced project engineers include professionals from solar, telecom, and other advanced technology sectors.
With our experienced in-house staff, New Energy Equity manages the thousands of details that go into taking a solar project from inception to completion. We dedicate Project Management Professionals (PMP®)-certified managers to each project to ensure all project details are executed properly. The project management of a solar project continues throughout every stage, and is therefore an intense and lengthy process that must be handled with unwavering attention and complete professionalism.
New Energy Equity works with designated Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) partners across the county to complete solar projects efficiently and cost effectively for all parties involved in the transaction. Our in-house team has vast experience in all aspects of construction and is the key element of our ability to bring the construction phase of our solar projects to completion on time and on budget.
As a transaction and capital-sourcing specialist, New Energy Equity has a remarkable track record in that 100% of the solar projects we have been involved with have been financed. Finding dependable money for a solar project is often the most difficult part of the enterprise, and our firm began with a focus solely on financing and project equity. Our success in finding project investment capital for solar projects led us to become more involved in other phases of solar projects as well.
New Energy Equity sources financing from private, public, and institutional investors with established long-term, successful relationships. We continue to specialize in identifying dependable investors to finance commercial and utility scale solar transactions. We provide financing from our own investment fund as well as from private, public, and institutional investors. Solar project financing remains a core strength of New Energy Equity.
