Over 300% increase in funder portfolio makes financing easier for businesses adopting clean energy solutions

Waterloo, ON – May 01, 2024—EnPowered, a leader in providing access to financing for commercial clean energy hardware projects, today announced it has completed its acquisition of LED.Finance, an energy financing company with over 30 years of experience supporting contractors, manufacturers, and distributors across the United States. This acquisition strengthens EnPowered’s commitment to reducing financing barriers for clean energy projects and grows its capacity to find financing options that perfectly fit the needs of clean energy contractors.
