About Argo Energy

ARGO Energy was created by a group of industry veterans who were frustrated by the lack of transparency in the development and financing of clean energy projects. Developers want to sell their projects. IPP’s and Utilities want to buy projects. However there’s still a huge gap in understanding the motivations of each group and the value each brings to a project.

At a glance

  • Developers and Financiers need each other but they refuse to learn each other’s language.

  • Whether it’s joint ventures, co-development, project capital, operating capital, take out financing or just a second opinion on the viability of a project, we are here to listen and engage.

  • We want more projects to be financed and built. We all want to leave a cleaner environment for generations to come.

ARGO Credo

We have experience in just about every project type: Utility Scale, Commercial, Industrial, Community Solar, Remote Net Meter, Islanded.
