Done Deal: ThinkHire

Powering Towards Net Zero

Solar Powered Renewable Energy Product

Established in 2018 and introducing its product set to market in early 2020, ThinkHire was created to enable infrastructure players to meet their net-zero targets in the face of the mounting climate crisis. ThinkHire offers lower carbon and lower cost substitutes to traditional diesel generators.


ThinkHire has pioneered the world’s first adaptable solar hybrid generator, an off-grid solar hybrid adaptable power supply unit proven to reduce CO2 emissions by over 90% and fuel costs by up to 80%. As ‘ESG’ and ‘Carbon Neutral/Net Zero’ targets become more common across Infrastructure and Construction companies, the need to operate sustainably is growing rapidly.


YFM Equity Partners invested in ThinkHire in Dec 2022. As part of its new growth strategy, ThinkHire will undertake sizeable investment in expanding its rental fleet of green energy fuelled portable power generators powered by a new Revolving Asset-Based Lending facility from PNC Business Credit.


Ideally positioned as the prime mover in its markets, ThinkHire is extending its distribution network across the UK and ramping up investment into developing new products and services to help clients meet their net zero goals.
