Investment & Financing

Investment & Financing

Aurora currently owns a number of solar PV projects, and we are diversifying our portfolio by investing in future projects both in South Africa and internationally, in both majority & minority shareholding positions.

Potential investment projects are subjected to a detailed due diligence and thorough macroeconomic and sociopolitical assessments. In addition to investment by Aurora, the team has an established track-record of raising both equity and debt funding for solar PV projects, whether utility-scale solar farms or rooftop installations. We hold strong relationships with both South African and international investors, development finance institutions and commercial banks; enabling us to raise financing for viable new solar PV opportunities.

Investment Philosophy

Our investment philosophy is defined by pursuing opportunities where Aurora can add value. It entails involving our experienced team in the development, closure and operations of the carefully selected projects we invest in. The Aurora team has extensive knowledge regarding:

  • Developing projects that meet investor standards
  • Completing detailed technical and environmental due diligence
  • Successfully raising financing (debt and equity) for solar photovoltaic projects
  • Closing project-financed deals
