Aegis Renewable Energy

aegis-renewableAegis Renewable Energy, a leading community scale solar, wind, and digester (“cow power”) integrator, has developed fourteen community scale wind turbine projects throughout the eastern US. Aegis offers a full range of services consisting of industry-leading system design, project financing options, procurement and logistics, on-time and on-budget installation, multi-year warranty support, ongoing maintenance, and client technical training.

The Flex Fund’s investment was used to spin off the wind division of what is now Real Goods Inc. (a Colorado based solar installation company) into a new LLC – keeping five full time jobs in Vermont and ensuring the company can stay and grow here in the Green Mountains. Aegis Renewable Energy is a mission-based company that is dedicated to providing clean energy solutions to empower their customers – farms, municipalities, schools, businesses, communities and other organizations – to enact positive change in the world.

Nils Behn, CEO:

“We did a tremendous amount of due diligence around capitalization of Aegis and when we came around to the VSJF Flexible Capital Fund it was clear that they were by far the best choice. The value comes from not only the perspective of retaining company ownership and control, but also in having a professional resource to help guide us through some of the challenges of growing our business. I was especially impressed with the integrity that is clearly anchored in the Flex Fund mission and in the people at the Flex Fund. There is no question that partnering with Flex Fund allowed us to confidently move forward.”
