Energi Solutions is seeking $40-60 million of growth capital to provides dynamic renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions for homes and businesses.

“More than panels” strategy – sell/install synchronized systems including solar panels, state-of-the-art HVAC and batteries, as complete and complementary solutions

Launched operations in the fall of 2021 with $700,000 of seed capital

Booked close to $8 million in revenue for YTD 2022 (seven months)

Agreement to acquire install company – management expects to more than double revenue and improve margins with in-house construction crews


Opportunity- Solar

Solar energy accounted for more than half (54%) of all new electricity-generating capacity in the US for the first nine months of 2021 – just 4% in 2010

Solar growth is mainly due to technological advancements, state and federal incentives to invest in clean energy, and corporate clean energy goals

Average cost to install solar has dropped over 70% over the past 10 years

Opportunity- HVAC

Spending on HVAC systems and installations in the US was $15.16 billion in 2020 – expected to expand 6.0% per year through 2028

Each year, three million US residential heating and cooling systems are replaced and $14 billion is spent on residential HVAC services or repairs

Availability of high-efficiency equipment, extreme climate conditions, and growing construction activities are primary factors driving the country’s HVAC demand



Differentiated from competitors by providing “synchronized solutions” to homes and businesses

bundle solar panels with high efficiency HVAC and battery systems – (allows for fewer panels and cost savings)

consumer installed costs (pre-tax incentives): solar $25-100,000; solar batteries $9,000+; HVAC $4-10,000

installed costs for businesses vary and can be significantly higher

Provide whole-home water purification systems ($3,500+ per installation) – air purification systems typically bundled with all residential sales

Building large direct sales force, which has shown to be a successful strategy in CEO’s prior experience, as well as in-house installation team to handle most projects
