Prospect14, Partners Launch Ampliform for Utility-Scale Solar Developments


Prospect14, a solar energy developer, has partnered with a bunch of energy buyers and operators with experience in power era and quantitative buying and selling to launch Ampliform, a three way partnership that can originate, develop, construct, function and optimize utility-scale solar and solar + storage tasks within the United States. Ampliform is backed by a major fairness dedication from a consortium of buyers led by the Jones Family Office, alongside Barings, the George Kaiser Family Foundation and others.

Prospect14, led by Carl Jackson, Geoff Underwood and Charles Silio, will present greenfield origination, growth and building companies to Ampliform. Also investing in Ampliform and serving on its government management group on behalf of Greens Ledge Renewable Partners (GLRP) are Brad Romine and Steve Culliton, who beforehand led North American power era investments, power buying and selling and asset optimization for Castleton Commodities International; John Vivenzio, who beforehand served as chief expertise officer of King Street Capital Management, a world different asset supervisor; and Mikael Andren, who serves as CEO and president of the Jones Family Office and associated entities.
