Why we finance

Clean energy developers and energy efficiency companies work hard to make the low carbon transition a reality. However, it’s not always easy to access the financing needed to get small to mid-sized projects off the ground.

CoPower’s mission is to help catalyze more clean energy and energy efficiency projects across North America by providing simple, streamlined financing solutions that meet the needs of our project partners.

What we finance

CoPower finances projects where the return and environmental impact of the project meets our expectations, and risks can be understood, managed and contained. We use investment processes and risk mitigation tools, standard in large infrastructure deals, such as warranties, rights-of-way and insurance contracts.

Our project partners include qualified developers, EPCs, installers and service providers and building owners who are using proven technologies to reduce carbon emissions in buildings and communities.

  • Solar PV
  • Energy efficiency (e.g. LED retrofits)
  • Geo-thermal and Geo-exchange
  • Energy storage
  • Bio-energy (e.g. biomass, digesters)
  • Microgrids
  • Small wind
