Scale Microgrid Solutions

In December 2019, Warburg Pincus led a $300 million line-of-equity commitment to Scale Microgrid Solutions (“SMS”), a vertically integrated distributed energy platform headquartered in Ridgewood, New Jersey. SMS delivers more sustainable, affordable and reliable power to commercial and industrial customers by deploying unique, fully-financed microgrid and distributed energy solutions. The company’s primary focus is in areas across North America where there are growing generation needs and a heightened focus on cost, reliability and emissions reduction. SMS is well-positioned to capitalize on these trends through its differentiated, complementary technical and financial approach to distributed energy. Warburg Pincus is actively working with the management team to accelerate the business plan, while providing access to capital and evaluating new project and acquisition opportunities.
