I Squared Capital, through its ISQ Global Infrastructure Fund, has acquired Lincoln Clean Energy (Lincoln), a developer, owner, and operator of wind and solar projects in North America. The transaction includes an operating solar facility in southern New Jersey and Lincoln’s development and asset management platforms, including a robust development pipeline. Lincoln plans to deploy $250 million in equity investments through 2018.

Founded in 2009, Lincoln has developed more than $1.5 billion of clean energy projects totaling 1,000 megawatts across North America. The company has assembled a team of veterans from the power industry. Declan Flanagan, Founder and CEO, is the former CEO of Airtricity North America. He went on to become CEO of E.ON Climate & Renewables following the 2007 acquisition of Airtricity North America. Declan has led the deployment of over $5 billion in capital in wind and solar projects in the U.S. and Europe and is a former board member of both the American Wind Energy Association and the Solar Energy Industry Association. The Lincoln team includes 18 professionals with over 150 combined years of experience in the renewable energy industry.

The wind and solar industries have received a regulatory boost in the U.S. following the recent extension of the 30 percent investment tax credit for solar energy and the 2.3-cent-per-kilowatt-hour production tax credit for wind power.

“This is an opportune time to invest in the renewable energy sector and we are delighted to partner with Lincoln’s high caliber management team, with its proven track record in the development and management of clean energy projects.” said Adil Rahmathulla, Partner at I Squared Capital.
