Since its inception in 2018, Skyline Clean Energy Fund (FundServ Code: SKY2018) has provided investors with historically stable returns while contributing to the development and maintenance of the Canadian energy supply.

About the presenters

Rob Stein, President, Skyline Clean Energy Fund

Rob Stein

Skyline Clean Energy Fund

Rob is responsible for the operational and financial performance of Skyline Clean Energy Fund’s portfolio.

This includes overseeing acquisitions and dispositions, overseeing financial budgets, implementing and monitoring capital expenditure projects, and monitoring the assets’ functionality.

Prior to joining Skyline, Rob spent ten years with Fritz Construction Service Inc. growing and developing the renewable division of the company. He garnered extensive experience in buying, selling, developing, constructing, operating, and maintaining renewable energy assets.

Rob’s well-rounded knowledge of the solar energy industry is an invaluable asset to the Skyline Energy team. He brings an understanding of both the acquisitions and mechanical sides of the business to the table. To Rob — and by extension, to Skyline Energy — there is more to a solar asset than simply the revenue it generates; he also considers how the mechanics of each asset Skyline Energy acquires can be optimized to its fullest energy production. By seeing the value that others may miss, Rob lends a unique advantage to Skyline Energy.
