ABOUT IPC


Inclusive Prosperity Capital, Inc. (IPC) is a mission-oriented investment fund platform working at the intersection of clean energy finance and community development. Our team is focused on deploying and connecting investment capital with mission-aligned organizations, clean energy projects, and community initiatives in traditionally underserved markets.

IPC makes direct investments and places 3rd party capital across all tranches of the capital stack (Debt, Equity, and Tax Equity), utilizing a variety of financing and ownership structures and supporting a wide array of clean energy technologies, from distributed solar, energy efficiency and decarbonization installations to small utility-scale infrastructure projects. IPC is unique in its ability to capitalize products and structures, at scale, that deliver both value creation to underlying customers/off-takers and market rate risk-adjusted returns to investors, all coupled with positive economic, environmental, and social impact.

We believe everyone should have access to the benefits of clean energy. We can change the conversation in underinvested communities and markets to deliver Inclusive Prosperity. For more information about IPC, please visit us at: https://www.inclusiveprosperitycapital.org/
