Investor capital, green energy initiatives, and historically reliable returns. One growth-oriented equity investment.
Skyline Clean Energy Fund (SCEF) is a privately managed investment fund focused on investing in renewable and clean energy production. The fund generates revenue through producing clean, sustainable power via clean energy assets, such as large-scale solar fields and biogas facilities. The power is purchased by the provincial government; this purchase agreement is backed by long-term government contracts.
The fund retains the cash flow and re-invests it into the acquisition of new income-producing clean energy assets, and the optimization of current assets.
This investment is available to accredited investors.

How Skyline Clean Energy Fund Works
Skyline Clean Energy Fund is currently made up of two types of clean energy assets: Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems and Biogas. Although these assets use different energy production methods, the end product is the same: clean, renewable power, which is sold to the electricity grid for a fixed rate, under a long-term government contract.
Click or tap the diagrams below to find out more about how Skyline Clean Energy Fund’s solar and biogas assets aim to produce growing distributions for investors.
- Solar assets harness the power of the sun.
- The power is converted so that it can be sent to the grid for general use.
- An electrical meter captures the amount of electricity generated.
- The provincial government, or the private business/landowner, pays a fixed rate per kilowatt-hour (kWh) produced.
- Cash flow is re-invested in acquiring new assets and optimizing current assets. This creates a compounding effect for the fund’s unit value. The growth of the fund benefits both investors and the environment.
- Food and organic waste is produced. The waste is sorted, ground, or mixed.
- The waste enters a biodigester and begins the process of anaerobic digestion, which creates biogas, and the by-product of digestate (fertilizer).
- The biogas runs through a Combined Heat & Power generator and is used for heat and electricity (or it is upgraded to Renewable Natural Gas and used for fuel).
- The provincial government, or the private business/landowner, pays a fixed rate per kWh of electricity produced from biogas.
- Biogas produces a cash flow to be re-invested in acquiring new assets and optimizing current assets. This creates a compounding effect for the fund’s unit value. The growth of the fund benefits both investors and the environment.

1 As at June 30, 2021. Prior to December 1, 2020, SCEF had reported Total Assets as being the value on the IFRS compliant balance sheet. This meant joint venture assets being reported as equity investments on a net asset basis, as opposed to reporting both the equity and debt portion of the joint venture asset. As of December 1, 2020, SCEF is reporting Total Assets Under Management (“TAUM”) in place of Total Assets. TAUM has been calculated monthly since the Fund’s inception and has replaced any previously reported Total Assets. The TAUM metric will report the proportionately owned assets and liabilities of these joint venture assets. SCEF believes reporting the TAUM is more reflective of the actual total value of the assets that the Fund owns, as well as the credit risk associated with these assets.
2 Expected Annual Generation is projected by an independent third-party, and calculated as an expectation of annual output based on analysis of a number of inputs, including historical production, system efficiency, and historical weather data.
