Clean Energy: What’s at stake for tax motivated equity investors?

The clean energy industry is growing rapidly, and a reasonable amount of tax motivated equity, including new markets tax credit and investment tax credit financing, is available for clean energy project finance, albeit not as in years past and at higher returns.

Finding the right opportunity can be a difficult task for seasoned investors, and even more so for those new to this asset class. The types of tax equity investments available to clean energy endeavors contain many unique and complex features. Of course, the chief concern is making sure that when tax motivated equity investors get into a deal, they are protected, and the deal is structured in a way to ensure that the desired return is commensurate with the level of risk associated with the project. These factors require

  • thorough due diligence,
  • a thoughtful assessment of the assumptions and estimates comprising a project’s financials,
  • a strong understanding of the available governmental programs and incentives to enhance the project’s potential returns, and
  • a calculated evaluation of risk.

Tax motivated equity investors need guidance in weighing the value of any project before striking a deal. Bingham Greenebaum Doll can help. If you have questions about investing in clean energy, contact an attorney from the Corporate and Transactional Practice Group at Bingham Greenebaum Doll.
