Background

HISTORY

Kearsarge Energy was formed in 2009 by a group of leading energy professionals with extensive personal relationships and experience in the industry, as well as a longstanding belief that renewable and sustainable energy development will continue to accelerate as a key part of the U.S. economy and will play a critical role in overall U.S. competitiveness in the twenty-first century global economy.  Kearsarge believes it can capitalize on highly compelling investment opportunities in several focused sectors of the renewable energy marketplace and deliver strong returns to both its investors and the environment.


 

PRINCIPLES

Kearsarge was founded on the premise that working with creative, intelligent and ethical people is a prerequisite for developing a successful organization. As a team we bring passion, integrity, and commitment to every partner and every project. We also seek to maximize value for all stakeholders of projects, including the communities and municipalities in which we operate.

 

APPROACH

Drawing on a track record of more than three decades as innovators in the energy industry and as successful corporate managers providing multiple exits for investors, the Kearsarge team has substantial experience in renewable energy operations, permitting, regulatory, legal, tax, economic forecasting, engineering, valuations, and financing.  We are a full service development company that both originates transactions and partners with outside firms to complete projects in later stages of development.  We believe the renewable industry in the U.S. is driven by local opportunities and hence focus on tightly specific regions.

Kearsarge has cultivated a series of key relationships in the industry – with municipalities and other governmental entities and regulatory agencies, project owners, bankers, tax assessors, intermediaries, developers, non-profits, consultants, and engineers – that allow our team to capitalize on key insights, move quickly, and act decisively as select business opportunities become available.

As a result, Kearsarge is uniquely positioned to take advantage of our country's growing demand and economic imperative for renewable energy.  We have the necessary resources to develop marketable projects and to deliver meaningful returns.
