The capital will be used to support DSD’s expanding pipeline of future projects in the commercial and industrial (C&I) market, grow its Developer Network, support corporate needs, and provide readily accessible capital for asset acquisitions.

“Bringing on another top tier investor to support business growth validates DSD’s approach and the power of our platform” said Greg Fabso, CFO at DSD. “This investment from Ares, along with continued support from BlackRock Real Assets, will enable us to scale further as we strategically build out more renewable energy projects across the country, take on new partners, and grow our asset base.”

DSD emerged out of General Electric with backing from BlackRock Real Assets in mid-2019 as a C&I developer, financier, asset owner and operator. Since then, DSD has grown significantly, expanding into community solar and asset acquisition in 2020, and launching its Developer Network and DSD Connect platform in 2021.

DSD’s backlog of contracted and awarded projects has more than doubled each year since 2019, with 2021 seeing a 150 percent increase. The company has a pipeline of over 1 GW of solar and energy storage projects today.
