In 2010 we went into partnership with Octopus Group, which helped us to rapidly build the business. This partnership provided Lightsource with access to funding that enabled us to develop c.850MW and together facilitated the deployment of over £880m into commercial scale solar assets in the UK. In 2015 an MBO bought out the majority of the Octopus stake. Lightsource is now wholly owned by the management team and employees. During the MBO process, Octopus refinanced the solar portfolio with Lightsource supporting as advisor. At the time, that was the largest ever GBP solar vendor financing.
