Purchase | Conventional Financing / Capital Lease | Operating Lease | Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

Purchase

Like the Capital Lease (below) this structure provides all energy savings, tax credits, accelerated depreciation, environmental attributes (e.g., RECs) and other incentives.

 

Conventional Financing / Capital Lease

Immediately reap all energy savings, tax credits, accelerated depreciation, environmental attributes (e.g., RECs) and other incentives while minimizing / eliminating your capital outlay.

You will receive 30% of the project gross cost as a dollar-for-dollar reduction in your federal tax liability, which can be taken all in year one or carried forward up to 20 years. Accelerated depreciation allows for a 5 year depreciation schedule for 85% of the gross System cost.

Up to 100% financing is available for short or long terms.

 

Operating Lease

The Operating lease is a non-balance sheet item and is fully expensed.

It’s the perfect option for companies with a strong balance sheet and good cash flow, but without the appetite for large tax credit and depreciation.

This option allows the customer to monetize both the depreciation and the ITC, thereby lowering overall cost.

Under this structure, you’ll receive all energy savings and environmental attributes.

 

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

A PPA is a contract to purchase solar generated electricity at a predetermined rate for a period, usually 15-20 years.

Your cost of energy is predictable, and will almost always be less than what you’re paying today!

We take full responsibility for the purchase, ongoing ownership and maintenance of your System.
