Renewable Energy Project Financing

Renewable energy project financing is heart and soul of our organization. Moving to renewable energy sources is a global effort, but the choice is clear. It will improve air pollution and energy security while fostering economic growth, and ultimately would improve health and quality of life of everyone sharing this planet. As energy demands continue to rise and fossil fuels are depleted, sustainable energy becomes increasingly important, which can be seen in the job growth within the renewable energy sector here in the United States. We understand the value of the entire spectrum of renewable energy technology: wind, solar, biomass, even geothermal and hydro.

In recent years third-party renewable energy project financing has been driving the cost lower, opening up access that was previously closed. Much of this has to do with the increased variety available on the renewable energy financial market, including power purchase agreements and a myriad of leasing options. There are also less frequently used products such as PACE project financing, which fill a need in the underserved small commercial market.

This reduced cost isn’t limited to the U.S. or other leaders in the renewable industry; it is also being seen in developing nations where over one billion people do not have access to electricity. Three times as many still rely on fuels like wood or coal to do their cooking. Renewable energy projects on the utility scale greatly improve health, while renewable energy projects on any scale boost economic growth and create jobs in their communities. If you are building energy-generating wind turbines on the other side of the world or a solar farm right our own back yard, we are happy to assist. We have been financing renewable energy projects for years and have been able to help countless clients earn their energy independence. Anyone who is looking for renewable energy project financing in the United States, Canada, India, China, or anywhere on this planet will find a wide range of financial solutions to solve any financing challenges.

We provide a number of financing solutions for renewable energy projects ranging from small commercial solar projects to utility scale renewable energy farms. Our proven experience means that we know which solutions will work for your situation, and how to close those solutions. Let us know how we can help; we will continue our investment in renewable technologies as we push forward to a low-carbon environment.

Waste to Energy Project Financing

Waste-to-energy (WTE) is a form of biomass renewable energy and is the process of generating electricity (or heat) by destroying waste, commonly in the form of incineration. Often the energy is generating directly from the incineration process, other times the processes yield combustible fuels like methane or syngas. In its simplest form, it is burning garbage to produce electricity. Upon deeper investigation, it is an increasingly complex process in which various forms of waste are used as a feedstock, then super-heated to the point they break down to their most basic elements and compounds. At this point there are different approaches to capturing the energy. This is the most basic concept we see all waste to energy projects follow that approach seeking energy project financing. Following the energy capture phase, the air is treated in various ways to remove any remaining contaminants and harmful emissions before releasing low emission exhaust. The treatment of the exhaust from the waste-to-energy power plant largely depends upon the regulations, some countries or cities have tighter emissions restrictions than others.

When choosing a lender for your waste-to-energy project funding it is important to find one with experience and desire to work in the WTE financing industry. Many renewable energy lenders prefer to deal with commercial solar and wind project financing, not understanding the many unique challenges of funding waste-to-energy projects and ultimately failing to close. Our energy project specialists know the importance of WTE project, which reduces our reliance on landfills and helping to offset the solid waste of the communities they serve. We are happy to assist with any questions regarding your project or the products we can offer.

Some important things to consider with waste-to-energy and biomass projects in general are how they differ from other renewable energy packages; waste energy projects have a high failure rate, coupled with a lack of valuable real estate and assets means these biomass projects can be more difficult to get funded. As a segment, waste-to-energy project financing has greater requirements and its own unique challenges. This is why you need someone with experience and knowledge to help you secure your biomass financing, we understand the challenges faced and know how to deal with them.

While we can help with the challenges above, there are items that make your WTE biomass project more desirable to project lenders. Much like any industry, it is easier to secure funding for proven technology. If your biomass project is one-of-a-kind, it may be difficult to find a renewable energy lender willing to take a risk. It is also critical that biomass projects have secured long-term offtake and feedstock agreements, as these both provide a stable future which leads to a sustainable energy project.

Solar Project Financing With A Power Purchase Agreement


A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) may be the ideal financing structure for companies that don’t have an appetite for the Federal ITC or MACRS (tax credits or accelerated depreciation) or for Non-Profit organizations. The tax benefits of the PPA are utilized by the investor and that value is passed back to the electric off-taker in the form predictable electric prices over a long term. Unlike a Capital Lease with a fixed purchase price at the end of the lease term, a PPA may offer multiple out options throughout the term of the agreement.


  ~ You only pay for the power that you use from the system
  ~ There are usually no other costs with the PPA to operate the system
  ~ Option to prepay the electric production payment to lower PPA kWh costs
  ~ Options to purchase the system after year six of the PPA
  ~ Monitoring, upkeep and cleaning are included in the PPA
  ~ Company Credit:  A+ to B- Credit types and Financially Strong Companies.
  ~ Company Types: For Profit and Not for Profit Entities
  ~ Ownership Type:  Owner occupied or Tenant occupied financing available
  ~ Project Type:  Commercial and Industrial Solar Projects using Tier 1 Equipment
  ~ 20 or 25-year term depending on the financial metrics of the project
  ~ Extend term, terminate agreement or purchase equipment at the end of the term.
  ~ Contact us for Minimum Funding Amounts
  ~ Can be roof mount, ground mount or carport install or combination of the three
