Fortistar: Low-Carbon Investments Make Financial Sense, Redesigned Website Explains Why

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Fortistar has launched a new, enhanced website that offers quick and easy access to information about Fortistar’s investment strategy, which has resulted in a successful lower carbon energy portfolio.

Fortistar’s investment strategy—connecting people and capital with low-carbon energy solutions—has resulted in positive and sustainable results for all parties. Fortistar’s portfolio has yielded cost-competitive energy solutions and meaningful investment returns necessary to attract capital.

Fortistar’s success is built on a foundation of outstanding professionals and their ability to forge strong relationships with investors, customers and local communities. The company’s experienced professionals share a deep understanding of the benefits of project financing and how to apply it to result in successful investments.

Visitors to the new website can learn about how the team’s disciplined focus has resulted in superior returns and helped communities and companies transition away from fossil fuels to lower carbon energy solutions.

“The new website will help visitors understand our long-standing commitment to investing in and operating lower carbon energy power generation. Low-carbon and sustainable energy solutions used to be expensive. This is no longer the case. There are power, transportation and industrial sector solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make real financial sense,” said Mark Comora, President, Fortistar. “We hope that by imparting our knowledge and investment strategy we can inspire communities, investors and companies to make wise investments and choices.”

The website has a new, comprehensive “family of companies” section with the latest information on the company’s portfolio, news and industry insights. Visitors can learn more about Fortistar’s natural gas cogeneration facilities, biomass electric generating plants and its time management software company Clock.In.

Site visitors can also learn how municipalities such as Prince William County, Virginia and the County of Los Angeles benefit from converting landfill gas to renewable energy and why organizations such as UPS and Chrysler have opted for CNG vehicles and fueling. The newest area of investment for Fortistar is industrial processes. The first investment in this area was in Carbon Free, a company with a facility that converts CO2 emitted from industrial processes into hydrochloric acid and baking soda.
