Farm Funding Project Financing
Wind turbine farm development financing enables
funding sponsors of large
projects to leverage their resources with little or no use of existing
corporate credit. In many cases, these qualify for our debt and equity
program. Typically, the assets and cash flows
are separated from the development's principals and independently underwritten by the
lenders. Credit appraisals and lending decisions are based on the inherent
economics of the development as opposed to the credit standing or balance sheet of
any group or individual developer.
In many cases, in development financing for
funding wind turbine farm projects, developers will
approach landowners where they want to construct. Interest in these developments is
frequently inspired by outside pressures such as tax and other financial
inducements and legal requirements. Tax credits are a huge incentive for equity
investors since they provide a quick return of cash in the form of a rebate of
up to 30% of the investment in most cases. These incentives often make the
difference in weather a development is profitable or not. Since each situation is influenced by local
policies and permit requirements, we can provided assistance to help you
understand the process of obtaining financing for funding and installing wind turbine
farm development projects.
Many recent developments in include several debt and equity.
Funding financing of wind farm project developments is fairly straight forward
and just takes a common sense approach. For many years, developers of fossil fuel-based energy in North America have
employed traditional techniques to fund, but this approach has been less
accessible to developers of renewable energy. Fortunately, as banks,
insurance companies and other financial institutions are becoming more familiar
with the technologies, regulatory landscape and transaction structures, this
type of development financing for funding wind turbine farm projects. With positive
trends in the cost and reliability of technology and the recent transition of
the industry to one dominated by larger participants with proven track records
and institutional relationships, the available financial options are expanding.
last decade, steady growth has been enjoyed by this renewable energy source. That growth is expected to continue in both the United States
and Canada as well as Anywherely in the coming years. Given the increasing number of credible sponsors
with well-established relationships with the lending community, the improving
credit position of many of the utility power purchasers and the increasingly
favorable regulatory environment globally more project
financing for funding wind turbine farm developments can be expected.
In the early 1980's, when the
first utility-scale operations were installed, they generated electricity cost
as much as 30 cents per kilowatt-hour. Due to the capitalizing of state-of-the-art power plants at
excellent sites, they are now generating electricity at less
than 5 cents/kWh. Costs are continuing to decline as more, larger
plants are constructed and advanced technology is introduced at an amazing rate.
The process generally will involve the
developer utility, construction contractor;
warranty, maintenance and service provider, typically the supplier of the equipment; operator often one of the project sponsors or an
affiliate; and the lenders. Additional participants will include independent
engineers and consultants engaged by the lenders to assist in evaluating
particular aspects of the transaction.
Put us to work
to get your green energy development off the ground by providing the capital
necessary to get you producing power for the grid. We bring to the table years
of experience and a myriad of institutional debt and equity resources to provide
the capital necessary to get you producing and feeding the grid.
Shovel ready plans are by far the most
desirable for all providers of capital into these developments. Lenders must
also do their due diligence to prove viability. Usually the first step for the lenders is to conduct an in-depth analysis of the
developer's feasibility study and possibly even hire a consultant to conduct an
independent feasibility study. These studies will analyze the wind resource data
and should demonstrate the financial viability of the undertaking. These studies
will detail technical, financial and other aspects of the development and are
crucial to the lender in its risk assessment of the proposed plan.
loan usually will be secured by all assets, including a mortgage on the
facilities and real property; assignment of operating revenues; liens on all
personal property; and assignment of all agreements and permits, including any
letters of credit or performance bonds to which the borrower is the beneficiary.
