Gateway Group represents Sunergy Renewables, a Port Richey, FL provider of residential rooftop solar panels and energy storage gear, as it goes public via a merger with the ESGEN SPAC in a deal valued at $475M.

Powered by more than 2,400 installations in Florida, Texas and Arkansas, Sunergy chalked up $123M in 2022 revenues and delivered $11M in EBITDA.

Tom Bridgewater, CEO and co-founder of Sunergy, said the combination with ESGEN is a “transformative step on our path to grow as a vertically integrated company.”

ESGEN is sponsored by Dallas-based infrastructure investment firm Energy Spectrum Partners, which has made more than $4.5B in equity capital commitments during the past 25 years.

Gateway Group’s Cody Slach and Tom Colton handle the investment community, while Zack Kadletz and Anna Rutter deal with the media regarding the SPAC transaction.
