A Century of Impact Infrastructure

This is Galehead's Vision. It articulates our belief that successful contributions to the Energy Transition will require meaningful scale, lasting permanence, and a diverse range of technologies and infrastructure. We honor our vision through the design of our platform, upstream specialization, a dedicated team, development of bold projects, and selection of our downstream partners.

Our track record and capabilities are best demonstrated by 7 GW of diversified (solar/wind/storage) pre-NTP development asset sales to downstream partners including EDF, Clearway, Treaty Oak, LS Power, Steelhead, Engie and Longroad. We’ve originated and also currently manage more than 15 GW of development assets for our joint development partners and growth pipeline in energy markets across the United States.
