Efforts Focused on Industrial Real Estate Assets in Southern California
November 08, 2023
DALLAS – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®) and Altus Power, the leading commercial-scale provider of clean electric power, today announced an exclusive strategic partnership to explore the development and construction of solar arrays and battery storage solutions for a subset of TIG’s industrial real estate properties, furthering Transwestern’s commitment to its stated ESG objectives.
Through this partnership, which aligns with TIG’s pledge to foster sustainable investing, the companies plan to evaluate opportunities for solar projects across 24 industrial and logistics properties totaling more than 8.2 million square feet. In addition to the building-sited, locally generated solar power, Altus Power and TIG will explore implementing battery storage and fleet electric-vehicle charging infrastructure. In concert, these initiatives aim to improve investors’ net operating income and make the assets more attractive to existing and prospective tenants.
“Our partnership with Altus Power highlights our commitment to deliver on sustainability objectives and drive value for our investors as well as prospective tenants,” said Gary Jaye, Chief Investment Officer of TIG. “As a market leader, Altus Power will help us identify and implement solutions for our industrial assets that are both environmentally sustainable and fiscally responsible.”
“The United States is seeing huge growth in renewable energy, and buildings are at the center of this clean energy revolution,” said Lars Norell, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Altus Power. “Through our fully integrated business model, Altus will present opportunities to streamline the deployment of clean energy solutions across a portion of TIG’s growing industrial portfolio while aiming to deliver savings on clean electric power, reducing TIG’s overall carbon footprint and increasing the net operating income of the portfolio.”
Altus Power recently developed an AI-powered comprehensive software-as-a-service platform to deliver clean power usage insights to clients as they strive to achieve ambitious net-zero goals. TIG properties with new solar arrays would be among the first to access the platform, allowing users to monitor savings from each solar asset and measure carbon emitted.
