Proven long-term infrastructure-ownership platforms
Today, large solar farms with long-term utility contracts are attracting more institutional investors like insurance companies and pension funds because these are typically low-risk assets and above market returns. For example, our “Helios” platform offers developers competitive pricing for their utility-scale solar projects or portfolios, and investors a compelling investment opportunity.
What is Helios?
Helios Infrastructure (Helios) is a joint venture of Sol Systems and Nationwide to acquire, develop, build, and own utility and commercial solar assets throughout the United States.
In partnership since 2012, Nationwide and Sol Systems have financed over $700 million of solar projects throughout the United States. We created Helios in 2018 to own and operate an expanding portfolio of utility-scale assets that sell energy to utilities, municipal customers, and universities.
As of Q4 2020, Helios owns and operates over 300 MW of commercial and utility-scale solar energy assets throughout the United States.
