VERO BEACH, FL., January 29, 2019 – Sea Oak Capital, LLC (“Sea Oak”), a private equity firm specializing in renewable energy investment, has completed the capital raise for its US Solar Fund. The investors are comprised of family office capital and high net worth individuals.
“Flexible and tax efficient capital is a necessary component of successful investment in the increasingly competitive renewable energy space,” said Dan Poydenis, Chief Executive Officer of Sea Oak. “Coupling efficient capital with our robust pipeline and strong relationships leaves us well-positioned to meet our 2021 goal of 100MW of operating solar projects under management.”
The firm’s primary strategy is to acquire substantially developed photovoltaic project opportunities and to self-monetize the investment tax credits and depreciation benefits generated by the projects. In addition, Sea Oak has implemented a co-development strategy in order to enhance its pipeline by partnering with project originators and developers early in a project’s life.
