SDC Energy, an investment firm specializing in renewable investments, has launched the SDSF Solar Fund IV for private investors, family offices, and financial advisors. The company said that the fund leverages solar incentives to offset investors’ taxes through financing commercial photovoltaic projects for non-profits, which are not eligible for income-reducing subsidies.
SDC Energy has partnered with Sunforce Solutions International, a solar project developer and CollectiveSun, a firm that helps non-profits and tax-exempt organizations fund solar projects. The fund is being hosted by InfraShares, a crowdfunding platform helping companies raise money to make cities smarter and more sustainable.
The fund has a minimum investment of $25,000 and a target raise of $5 million.
“We are excited to make our tax-advantaged solar financing program accessible to a broader pool of conscientious investors,” says SDC Energy president Charles Schaffer. “Our solar fund offers a triple play of benefits: it lowers taxes, offsets dirty fossil fuels, and helps mission-based organizations acquire clean, cost-effective solar.”
SDC Energy is a commercial solar financing firm that has helped American businesses finance more than 52 gigawatt hours of clean solar power since 2009.
