Morgan Asset Management and an affiliate of Upper Bay Infrastructure Partners have entered into a joint venture that will provide equity capital for 8minutenergy’s 10.7GW portfolio of utility PV and storage projects.This joint venture, along with investment from 8minutenergy CEO, Tom Buttgenbach, provides over US$200 million in capital commitments. 8minutenergy is wholly owned by Buttgenbach and his management team as of 6 December 2018. Buttgenbach, who co-founded 8minutenergy in 2009, led a management buyout of the shares of fellow co-founder Martin Hermann last week.Buttgenbach noted: “We thank J.P. Morgan and Upper Bay for bringing the long-term focus and financial resources to enable us to unleash the full potential of our pipeline and incredibly talented team.“We have been the largest and most successful solar developer in California, and have expanded our cost leadership across the US, developing a solar and storage project pipeline of 10.7GW. A testament to our low-cost leadership is the 420MW Eagle Shadow Mountain Solar plant in Nevada, which at 2.3 cents/kWh fixed for 25 years, holds the record for lowest-price solar PPA in the nation. In Texas, which is a purely price-driven competitive market, we will start construction of our 280MW Holstein 1 power plant in the second quarter of 2019.”Michael Lehman, managing director and portfolio manager of J.P. Morgan Asset Management, said: “We’ve been very impressed with the 8minutenergy team and their ability to deliver sustainable returns through their utility-scale solar projects. 8minutenergy has a premier development process that consistently delivers attractive solar projects with long-term, contracted cash flows.”More: JP Morgan buys into 10.7GW solar-plus-storage pipelinelast_img

There are two very specific predictions that none of us can make: How will the economy perform in the future, and what financial products and services will consumers be interested in during specific times of stability or uncertainty?Regardless of economic conditions, it seems likely that consumers will still need basic products like car loans, credit cards and mortgages. There will still be a need for deposit demand accounts, loans, investment accounts and, of course, credit union memberships.The big question remains: What additional products should credit unions be offering in the future? The inability to answer this question with complete certainty is the reason why the specific products offered for cross-sell are actually less important than the technologies used to present them.It is tempting to get caught up in the latest fashion trends of the next great cross-sell product. At various times, credit unions target debt protection, guaranteed asset protection, mechanical repair coverage, unemployment insurance, new loan offers, loan recaptures and replacement loan products. Some may focus cross-sells on building loyalty with innovative service offerings, such as credit counseling for the credit-impaired, or deposit products for affluent members. One credit union even collected information from the community so it could alert members with young children of openings at a popular daycare facility. continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img
