We’re continuing to use our network in the Canadian clean energy sector to identify the best acquisition opportunities for the fund.”
The Skyline Energy team’s years of experience in the construction, management, and optimization of clean energy systems continues to be an asset to the SCEF portfolio.

1 Expected Annual Generation is projected by an independent third-party and is calculated as an expectation of annual output based on analysis of a number of inputs, including historical production, system efficiency, and historical weather data.
2 Estimated Gross Annual Revenue is calculated as: (size of system, measured as kilowatts) x (production factor of system, measured as kilowatt hours generated per kilowatt) x (tariff rate, measured as revenue per kilowatt hour generated)
