LightSource Renewables’ mission is to be a leading integrated investor, developer and operator of renewable energy assets within the United States and throughout the world.
LightSource Renewables invests in, develops and operates renewable energy projects. The Company takes equity positions in select renewable energy project developers. However, the primary focus of LightSource is solar energy development. LightSource develops, owns, and operates utility scale solar power generating facilities. The firm is currently seeking renewable energy project opportunities throughout the U.S.
When considering project development or investment opportunities, a common set of criteria is considered: favorable economics, scale, environmental constraints, transmission constraints, time to market, market demand, regulatory risk and technology risk. Typically, investments in a project or a set of projects are equal to or greater than 20 MW (megawatts). LightSource utilizes its expertise in development, PPA negotiation, transmission and project finance to identify and develop successful projects.
LightSource occasionally partners with other project developers and investors and takes the lead in permitting and project development.
