Sunergy Renewables, a Florida-based residential solar company, is set to list on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange via a merger with special purpose acquisition company ESGEN Acquisition.

The deal values the combined business at $475m and is expected to generate proceeds of up to $65m.

The boards of both companies have unanimously cleared the deal, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2023. The board of the merged entity will include representatives from both companies.

Sunergy Renewables was established in 2005 in New Port Richey, Florida, and sells solar and battery energy storage systems to residential consumers.

Its expansion will focus on specific geographic areas with “attractive” solar and distributed energy features and with “less saturation from competing solutions”.

Its markets include Florida, Texas and Arkansas.
