We Partner With You on Solar RFP’s

Bid A Winning Solar PPA Rate

Bidding on a solar RFP can be tough for developers and installers: you need to propose a PPA rate without knowing if an investor will finance that rate. SolRiver Capital solves this problem completely – we tell you the PPA rate you need to secure an investment from us before you respond to the RFP. By partnering with us, you can confidently put together financeable PPA terms in your next solar bid. We even provide several tools to help in the bidding process, which we discuss below.

Tools to Help on Solar Bids 

SolRiver offers a PPA Rate Finder calculator, sample bankable PPA contracts, buyout pricing schedules, and more. Below, we go over how each of these tools can help you.

We recommend using all of SolRiver’s available resources next time you’re responding to an RFP.

Find the PPA Rate You Need 

The Rate Finder solves for the PPA rate needed to hit a desired funding amount. First, fill out a handful of project-specific variables like system size and production. Then, enter the Purchase Price you want to receive from SolRiver. The Rate Finder shows you the PPA rate you need to get that price.

Request PPA Buyout Terms

SolRiver Capital also provides PPA buyout price schedules. RFP’s frequently request the option to purchase the system before the PPA ends. This can make bidding tough because you need to propose a buyout schedule without knowing if it’s financeable. Partnering with us solves this problem too – we tell you the buyout price you need to get the full investment from us.

Commonly, most RFP’s ask for buyout options in years 7, 10, 15, and 20 (depending on the length of the PPA). We’re happy to provide the buyout prices for those years or any others requested in your RFP. To discuss buyout terms for your bid, you can send us an email or simply fill out the form below.
