Renewable Energy Financing

A New Approach to Renewable Energy Financing

We offer a unique and proprietary project financing programs for solar, waste-to-energy, wind, fuel cell and geothermal project developers seeking to finance for commercial (corporate or governmental) projects in excess of $500,000,000.

The Structured Financial Renewable Energy Financing Program offers a unique solution to transaction funding challenges faced by many renewable energy project developers. Our program provides long-term, low-cost financing for 100% of project costs and allows the project developer to control tax and other benefits of these transactions, without making an equity contribution to the project financing capital stack.

HOW IT WORKS

INVESTMENT FUND - INSURANCE L.P​ Financing Program can utilize Loan or Lease instrument, or transactions with a PPA from an investment grade off-taker, provided that the PPA can incorporate a floor payment provision.

 Upon the closing of project financing, 100% of project financing proceeds are placed in the hands of a third-party Loan Trustee and the project developer may request loan draws on a weekly or monthly basis.

 Construction period interest is funded as part of loan proceeds, and no debt service is payable until project completion and commencement of commercial operation. At that time, the project financing automatically converts to long-term (10 to 25 year) fully-amortizing debt.

As a single construction-to-permanent loan, this approach eliminates the need for the project developer to acquire separate construction and permanent financing and to pay duplicative financing and legal costs to two different lenders.

Renewable Energy Refinancing and Sale-Leasebacks

Structured Financial provides refinancing and sale-leaseback financing for project developers with a desire to monetize their trapped project equity in renewable energy projects. The ability to recoup their invested capital along with an additional profit allows these funds to be deployed toward profitable new projects and allow the developer to increase their “transactional velocity”.

In this approach, the existing project off-take agreements and stabilized cash flows are used for debt underwriting and in many cases the result is that the project developer can monetize more equity and/or actually offer to reduce the off-taker’s power or commodity pricing, based the low cost of funds provided by Structured Financial.

These solutions also offer an excellent exit opportunity for Tax Equity investors in these projects, once the tax benefits have been fully-depleted.
