Sorry, not much to say.
Basically there are three options: Foresight, Ventus, and Hazel/Gresham House.
You've already spoken for Ventus: the only thing I can really add is that there's a bit of history: Ventus 2 had some failed projects which hammered them, but have recovered well since then albeit from a reduced base (I bought at a huge discount). They have a choice of share classes: the "C" shares of both are, I think, identical. Management charges are outrageous for a mature portfolio, and the management seem impervious to shareholder interests in a few matters (BBB has made some valiant efforts). But if you can turn a blind eye to that, the income is good.
Foresight Solar & Infrastructure has been a good investment from the start. I no longer hold (sold in an offer too good to refuse), so my info may be out of date, but I don't think much has changed. A steady 6p/year dividend on a stable NAV of just under £1. And much lower management charges than Ventus. But liquidity is low and my attempts to get a decent price (to buy back in) from the market maker failed miserably a while back. The main reason to make the effort would be (as with Ventus) if the tax exemption on the income is going to make a big difference to you.
I've never held nor followed Hazel; all I know comes from Foolish boards (TMF, then here). They've been a profitable investment, but there have been some shareholder fireworks. I'm absolutely unqualified to comment.
There were some others in the class, but I believe the above three are the (only) ones that have been decent investments.
