Aplomado is a Dallas-based energy investment firm focused on acquiring land and leases under solar projects throughout the United States. We provide landowners and solar developers with capital and liquidity during the life cycle of solar developments to help bring more solar projects to fruition.
Aplomado was founded in 2020 following discussions with both solar developers and our longtime investment partners. Solar developers were in need of creative capital sources to help fund a very capital-intensive business, and our investment partners were seeking ways to participate in and accelerate the development of solar energy projects. The focus on solar land and royalties allows Aplomado to use our extensive land and mineral acquisition experience to help address these needs. We are excited to work side by side with all constituents during this period of energy transition.
Our affiliate PetroCap, LLC and its predecessors have been investing in all segments of energy since 1992. Our in-house team includes land, engineering, grid, geographic information system (GIS), minerals, and finance professionals.
Our Guiding Principles
Deal in the Truth
Transparency with all stakeholders. We make our decisions out in the open where all can see.
Maintain a Flat Organization
Everyone contributes to the decision-making process. All opinions are valued and considered. The best answer always wins.
Always Ask Why
Just because something has been done a certain way historically does not mean it is the best way. Innovate where others have not.
Work Hard and Smart
Our stakeholders are counting on each of us to get our job done well and on time.
Make Every Project Better
Create value by bringing our expertise to every project on which we work.
Find a Way to Give Back
We are a fortunate group of people. In our own way, we all need to find a way to give back to the local community.
