REI: RENEW Energy Initiative

Michael Sokoll

Atlantic continues to grow our list of direct lenders and integrators for Alternative Energy projects. We have the connection not only to funding sources for your project, but also those who can engineer, site and plan your entire project if you need it.  The Alternative Energy field is growing and will continue to grow and mature in the US for many years to come. Getting to a lender that will see all that a project has to offer is a mystery that only some funding sources have solved and we have found them. Please ask us for more information because your project will not get done without funding.
