The Financial Opportunity In Renewable Energy

The Financial Opportunity In Renewable Energy


Solar energy is emerging as a resource with exponential growth.  With the US electric energy policy offering the federal solar tax credit (ITC), its the perfect time to capitalize on the financial opportunities of installing solar; reducing operating costs, leveraging tax incentives & locking in energy costs for years to come.

A Complex Risk: Solar Projects

Launching a solar project is filled with challenges  - finding financing, hedging against production shortfalls, securing contracts with counterparties and finding contractors that can move the project forward.
 Bonds may reduce the cost of funding the construction phase, however finding affordable bonds is often difficult due to the lack of familiarity insurance professionals have with the risks associated with the fledgling renewable energy industry.
In addition, a solar installation is uniquely different from a typical construction project:

Short duration of the project in proportion to the dollar amount

Unique contracts with efficiency guarantees and longer warranty periods

Much higher component cost compared to labor cost
