Why wait 20 years for a return on your investment?

Here at Lightsource, we take great pride in our portfolio, which includes the assets that we ourselves developed, and also those that we have acquired from other developers and owners.

Our dedicated in-house acquisitions teams work tirelessly to make sure that every transaction moves smoothly, ensuing that the process is as snag-free and efficient as possible. Investments and funding for projects is secured prior to propositions, so the finance for each acquisition is already in place, providing added security to each exchange.

Qualification Criteria

We have an unrivalled track record in the acquisition and financing of utility scale solar installations. We are renowned for subsequently deploying the highest standards in the long-term operation of solar PV systems. As a privately-owned company and managing most the transaction process in-house, our decision-making process is swift and streamlined and we pride ourselves on managing every transaction efficiently. Finance and funding for our projects is secure, and the fact that we raised over £1.1bn of project finance debt during 2015 demonstrates our capacity to structure innovative financing solutions.

Lightsource is offering you a chance to realise your long-term investment. If an installation you own or are developing meets the following criteria, we could be interested in adding it to our operational portfolio, which currently includes more than 1GW.

  • Ground Mount or Large-Scale Rooftop
  • SDE+ subsidy granted
  • Permits in place or on track
