Geenex Solar Secures Development Funding from New Energy Capital

(Charlotte, NC) – Geenex Solar LLC (“Geenex”), a utility-scale solar developer focused on the PJM energy marketplace, is pleased to announce the closing of additional financing from New Energy Capital (“NEC”).  NEC and Geenex entered into their first financial arrangement in early 2019.  With NEC’s support, Geenex has significantly grown the size and scope of its development portfolio over the past three (3) years. 

“The partnership with NEC allows Geenex Solar to focus on what we do best, develop utility-scale solar projects,” said Sarah Hetznecker, CEO of Geenex Solar.  “We are excited to have such a strong partner who recognizes the significant value of the clean renewable energy that our projects will be supplying to the grid in the future.”

Capital from the closing will provide Geenex Solar with the ability to fund critical development and operating expenses.  This new investment will allow Geenex to further advance their pipeline of more than eight (8) GW of solar and energy storage projects across the Southeast and the Midwest.

 “NEC is thrilled to continue our partnership with Geenex Solar,” stated Patrick Fox, Partner at New Energy Capital. “Geenex is a best-in-class developer comprised of an outstanding team of professionals who really understand the utility-scale solar market and what it takes to make a project successful.  We look forward to supporting them in the years to come.”
