The Latin Power Funds are managed by Conduit Capital Partners, LLC, an independent private equity firm based in New York City. We build or buy electrical generating plants located in Latin America and the Caribbean and have been in business for 12 years. We will invest from $5 million to over $100 million in each transaction and we look to own a majority of each plant.
We currently own a number of hydroelectric plants and a geothermal plant. We also have experience with wind farms and biomass plants. We will invest in any technology that is proven and reliable. Conduit invests in medium-sized independent electric power plants. Typically, projects meet the following criteria: power generation facilities should require total investment of $60MM – $300MM, in countries with political stability and projected economic growth are emphasized, with a consortium of private, local and multinational sponsors, as Greenfield projects and/or Acquisition.
Projects should meet predictable revenue streams created by Long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with a credit worthy purchaser and/or o Power generation efficiencies that allow individual projects to compete as low-cost suppliers to a spot market. Projects should be structured to be insurable by World Bank’s MIGA, U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation ("OPIC") or other reliable insurers. Conduit invests sufficient equity to ensure management control of projects and a majority representation on the Board of Directors
