Our History

Pioneers in renewable finance, from the beginning.

Renewable Finance Company was founded by veterans of the wind energy industry. We initially formed American Wind Capital in 2008. American Wind Capital quickly became the leader in renewable energy lease and easement ground rent conversions. In May 2014, Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. (NYSE: HASI) acquired American Wind Capital Company. AWCC Capital was founded in 2014 to continue to originate solar and wind related real estate transactions and manage the existing portfolio of 1000 MW’s of ground rent revenue under 40 renewable projects in 14 US states. In January of 2018 AWCC Capital was acquired by Marathon Capital. In 2020 Renewable Finance Company was formed to continue our mission benefiting renewable energy development and finance in the United States.
