Enpal secures EUR 150m investment from SoftBank Vision Fund 2 for fight against the climate crisis

Just weeks before world leaders gather at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November to discuss measures to address the climate crisis, German solar start-up, Enpal, today announces that it has closed a EUR 150m investment from SoftBank Vision Fund 2. The investment concludes Enpal’s Series C financing round. The company recently raised EUR 100m from prominent investors, among others HV Capital and SolarCity co-founder Peter Rive. Founded only in 2017, Enpal has become a market leader in residential rooftop solar in Germany with over 10,000 customers. Today’s announcement marks another strong sign that investors are joining the fight against the climate crisis.

“The fight against climate change is one of the biggest challenges of humankind, and truly our moonshot mission”, said Enpal founder Mario Kohle. “Our dream is to bring a solar system on every roof, battery storage into every home, an electric car in front of every door, and to connect all people from all walks of life to a sustainable community. We are excited and humbled to have SoftBank Vision Fund 2 on board and supporting our mission to make clean energy easy, affordable, and accessible for everyone.”
