IGS Solar, a turnkey commercial and residential solar provider based in Dublin, Ohio, and ORIX USA, a New York-based affiliate of ORIX Corp., partnered to develop, acquire, own and operate a nationwide portfolio of commercial and industrial solar energy projects.

With a shared philosophy to address the solar needs of small- to medium-sized commercial-scale power users, the two firms aim to make strides in meeting the growing appetite for solar projects in this market.

“We look forward to serving as a long-term partner with IGS Solar, as we both expand our solar energy footprint across the country. Together, we are well positioned to reach more of the commercial and industrial solar market,” says Barry Gold, managing director of ORIX USA’s infrastructure investment team.

“Our alignment with ORIX fits closely with our long-term approach,” adds Scott White, president and CEO of IGS. “We share the same culture of innovation, commitment to delivering exceptional customer experiences and making solar accessible, particularly to organizations that haven’t previously been able to consider it due to the upfront costs.”
