Our Story

38 Degrees North is a Marin County, California-based private investment firm specializing in renewable energy infrastructure with a primary focus on solar energy and battery storage.  We founded our company in 2016, however our principals have 9 years of professional experience and friendship together. 


We invest in high quality distributed, community solar and battery storage portfolios.  We target durable relationships with development partners and design dependable institutional capital solutions for them.  We invest through equity facilities alongside our long-standing private equity partners, and we source project debt and tax equity as needed from capital providers with whom we have extensive history.

We aim to team with developers in an open fashion to establish clear visibility to project value creation.

We are long term investors and seek sustainable yields over the asset life.  We are principals, not agents, and align ourselves straight alongside our equity partnerships over the long run.
