Holland & Knight Represents Valta Energy in Strategic Investment by Longroad Energy

ORANGE COUNTY, CA (July 6, 2022) – Holland & Knight advised Valta Energy, a Dana Point, California-based developer, owner and operator of distributed generation (DG) projects, in connection with a strategic investment by Longroad Energy. Longroad's initial equity investment will provide growth capital to Valta's development pipeline, thereby positioning the company for more rapid expansion.

Valta develops and operates assets nationwide, with operating assets primarily in California, Massachusetts and Hawaii, which is a strategic fit with Longroad's existing utility-scale business.

Longroad's rationale for the investment is to grow its exposure to the rapidly growing U.S. DG segment through an established development, ownership and operation platform. Valta has over 200 megawatts (MW) of contracted solar assets in development, construction or operations. Longroad has an option to invest even more equity capital within the next three years.

Founded in 2016, Longroad Energy Holdings, LLC is focused on renewable energy project development, operating assets and services.

Holland & Knight Partners Bryan Gadol and Scott Syverson led the representation of Valta. They were assisted by Partners John Dierking, Kevin Gooch, Wendy Kottmeier, Tim Ryan and Bill Sherman, and Associates Sean Belcher, Scott Brown, Saqib Hossain, Daniel Janovitz, Jose Manalo, Lauren Thomas and Kyle Turnbull.
