Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company LLC (the Company), a limited liability company that invests in renewable energy assets, announced today that it will terminate its public offering of securities on or about January 31, 2019.
We have been pleased with the steady increase in overall investor subscriptions as well as the performance of our investment portfolio. As was contemplated in our offering prospectus, the Company expected to achieve a certain scale before beginning the process of seeking strategic alternatives that will hopefully benefit our investors, said Charles Wheeler, CEO of the Company. At the direction of our Board, and consistent with our opinion it is in the best interests of our investors, we will cease raising capital through our public offering while continuing to work with institutional investors to position the Company for the best overall outcome. While the Company will only accept subscriptions for its public shares until on or about January 31, 2019, the dividend reinvestment plan and the share repurchase plan will continue to be available to investors.
As of August 31, 2018, the Companys investment portfolio includes 114 commercial solar assets, five wind farms and 4,584 residential solar installations located in 20 U.S. states or Canadian provinces with a rated system capacity of 191.71 megawatts, including 64.7 megawatts currently under construction, for a total capacity of 256.41 megawatts.
