WESTPORT, Conn., April 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — True Green Capital Management LLC (“TGC”), a renewable energy infrastructure investment firm, is pleased to announce the recent closing of a controlling investment in Faradae SAS (“Faradae”), together with project capital, to support the company’s growth in the French distributed solar market. Faradae is an independent producer of renewable energy headquartered in Lyon, France, targeting French real estate investment funds (“REITs”) and other corporate clients for solar installations. This investment, TGC’s first in Europe, was financed by TGC’s fourth fund, True Green Capital Fund IV, L.P. (“Fund IV”).

“Faradae shares our fundamental conviction that distributed solar generation is the most attractive segment of our industry,” explained Panos Ninios, managing partner and co-founder of TGC. “Our collaboration paves the way for our rapid development in the distributed solar power market in France.”

“We are excited to take Faradae to the next phase of growth. We have been impressed with TGC’s experience and operational capabilities in the space of distributed solar generation,” said Tom Lawson, CEO and Co-Founder of Faradae. “For us, TGC has proven to be about much more than money: their experience and insight are not that common among infrastructure investors.”

“The timing is perfect for behind-the-meter solar,” added Tom Lawson. “Our facilities supply energy to our customers’ buildings, shielding them from the volatility of energy prices. Prices in Europe have risen very fast and have become unstable. In addition, the new regulations specifically favor solar installed behind the accountant against larger projects”.

Leveraging its recently closed $660 million Fund IV, TGC continues to focus on the major distributed renewable generation markets in North America, as well as select new markets in the United Kingdom and the European Union, where the company believes its experience and investment capacity in distributed generation in the United States translate well, giving you a competitive advantage in these evolving markets.
