About Palmetto Group
Palmetto is an international development firm that finances, owns and operates clean energy projects for both residential and commercial clients. Palmetto’s mission is to drive clean energy towards a subsidy-free and economical solution for everyone. In doing so, we have set an ambitious company milestone: to make Palmetto a leading development and finance company with a single emphasis on mitigating climate change and promoting solar as the viable clean energy option.
Founded in London, Palmetto has expanded its headquarters into the United States in Charleston, South Carolina and an office in California. Our offices service a growing portfolio of solar and other clean energy projects. Palmetto has worked on clean energy projects in both the advisory and investment capacity in over twenty countries. With a proven track record and stable operational history, we have become a leader within the clean energy sector. Palmetto’s history dates back to 1996 through acquisition of a well-established investment bank which vertically integrated the company’s development business. We have a highly experienced management team, which is complimented by a support staff of twenty-two team members, have closed over 80 clean energy related transactions worldwide and have financed over 2,000 MW of renewable energy.
Palmetto’s pipeline portfolio extends beyond the east coast markets in the USA and includes Hawaii, California, Arizona, Texas and Puerto Rico. The portfolio pipeline is substantial and is currently in the contractual stages with selected EPC developers. Additionally, Palmetto is exploring key partnerships in Europe - primarily in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
In August 2014, Palmetto Group launched Palmetto Direct, an online platform that is uniquely positioned to enable retail investors to benefit from Palmetto’s high quality portfolio of clean energy investments that deliver solid, dependable returns underpinned with capital preservation.
