Hecate Energy


Hecate Energy is a developer of solar power plants, natural gas–fired power plants, wind power plants, and energy storage solutions. We are guided by a mission to develop, own, and operate power-generating facilities in the United States and select international markets. Hecate Energy is uniquely qualified to carry out a wide range of development projects, at any stage, with an unmatched level of energy, professionalism and dedication. Founded and led by a team of industry veterans who have worked together successfully for nearly 20 years, Hecate Energy’s team members have developed thousands of MW of solar, wind and natural gas projects.

Founded in 2012, Hecate Energy has over 2,400 MW of power plants under development, including natural gas projects in Oregon and Pennsylvania, solar power plants in Rhode Island, Maryland, Virginia, New York, Ohio, Texas, Georgia, and California, and energy storage projects in Ontario. Hecate Energy has developed power projects in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Georgia that are currently operating. In addition, Hecate Energy has a strong international presence including projects in Pakistan, Tanzania, Jordan, and Mexico. On June 3, 2014, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power board unanimously approved the award of 190 MW of solar PV PPAs to Hecate Energy. This award consists of two 56 MW projects, a 50 MW project, and 28 MW of in-city distributed generation solar PV projects. These projects will achieve commercial operations from late 2015 through December 2016. Hecate Energy is committed to using local Los Angeles based businesses to support the project development, construction, and operation of these projects.

Hecate Energy is a charter member of President Obama’s Power Africa initiative, designed to double the number of people with access to electricity in six African nations. In November 2013, the University of Dodoma in central Tanzania entered into an MOU with Hecate Energy to develop 55 MW of solar generation on the campus and in partnership with leading higher education institutions to build a School of Energy and Environmental Science.

Hecate Energy’s executives previously were founders of OCI Solar Power, where they held positions of President, COO, Senior Vice President of EPC & Operations, and Board Members. While at OCI Solar Power, this executive team formulated the strategy and led the negotiations to enter into a 400 MW solar PPA with CPS Energy of San Antonio, Texas. The solar project in San Antonio is currently the largest municipal solar plant development in the United States, and is the largest initiative of its kind in the world that combines economic development with clean energy development.
