Concurrently with the investment, Heelstone Energy rebranded to Heelstone Renewable Energy, LLC (“HRE”) and introduced a new logo and website.

“With the flexible capital solutions, deep industry expertise, and support from the AIP team, HRE will continue to expand its development capabilities and reach as a utility-scale solar developer,” stated Will Owens, Chief Executive Officer and Board Member of HRE.

“We are excited to partner with HRE, a leading utility scale solar developer,” said Keith Derman, Partner and Co-Head of AIP. “HRE is our ninth investment in the solar sector and provides our clients with access to one of the fastest growing segments of the power industry.”

AIP invests in cash-generating value-added infrastructure assets with strong downside protection and the potential for capital appreciation throughout the climate infrastructure, natural gas generation, and energy transportation sectors. The AIP strategy has deployed over $8 billion in infrastructure projects and companies and is supported by 26 investment professionals.

Holly Vandergrift, HRE’s Marketing Director, stated, “The Company’s rebrand reflects HRE’s commitment to the development of clean and sustainable power.
