(Press Release) Activate Renewables, a leading acquirer of real estate and royalty interests in wind, solar and energy storage, today announced it has closed on the purchase of a portfolio of renewable ground leases from a fund managed by the Infrastructure Opportunities strategy of Ares Management (“Ares”).

The portfolio consists of wind and solar property leases together supporting more than 115 megawatts of power. The portfolio has assets located across three states with long-term power purchase agreements with high-quality off takers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We were excited to have the opportunity to work with Ares on the sale of these assets,” said Maria Klutey, president of Activate Renewables. “This transaction represented an ideal project for Activate, where we could deploy our low-cost, permanent capital to acquire an attractive portfolio.”
