Energy Definition
Medium term agreements (5-10 year) in which the end user owns the system and makes scheduled lease payments to BSR.
Energy Definition
An alternative to PPA’s when regulatory constraints don’t allow BSR to “Sell Power”.

FEATURED PROJECT

HAWAII & NEW JERSEY SCHOOL FUND  | SOLAR PV PORTFOLIO

HAWAII & NEW JERSEY

BioStar led the acquisition and turnaround of a distressed solar portfolio serving public schools across Hawaii and New Jersey. The BioStar Asset Management Team took over the 35-site portfolio in 2018 and began improvements on a slew of issues including inverter replacements, panel upgrades and upgrading a malfunctioning tracker system that was causing shortages in production. BioStar successfully exited the portfolio and asset management duties as a part of a mutually beneficial buyout from a capital partner.
