Solar Investment Options
SolRiver offers Project Developers the full capital stack needed to fund solar projects.
Funding For Project Developers
We offer construction equity and takeout capital prices. We use a flexible approach tailoring investments to our partner’s objectives.
We provide Full Capital Stack
SolRiver acquires projects from our developer/installer partner at NTP. Our invested capital fully monetizes the energy tax credit and other tax benefits, like a tax equity investor.
Upon acquisition, our purchase price is paid out in a series of milestone payments. Payments cover the EPC Costs and, any construction loan fees, with the remainder allocated to you as a “Developer Fee.”
Our final milestone payment is subject to standard conditions, such as:
- Reaching final completion under the EPC agreement
- Interconnection with the utility
- Satisfying all conditions precedent under the revenue contracts (PPA, SRECs etc.)
- Demonstrating clear title with a Title Insurance Commitment (for ground mounted arrays)
- Independent Engineer Report confirming the as-built project is consistent with the underlying deal terms
Ask about our investment process
What do you want to learn about:
If you’re obtaining your own construction loan, the bank often requires you invest the capital to fund the initial costs, called “proof of equity.” SolRiver can provide the funding to fulfill this proof of equity under the construction loan.
To get a project to NTP, the project often needs to meet several pre-NTP requirements. SolRiver can provide the development capital needed to cover the expenses incurred in reaching these requirements
Our Flexible Approach
We begin working with you by giving you an estimated purchase price based on your project’s projected financial returns. The easiest way to get a quote is to use our First Pass Pricing Calculator.
This First Pass Estimate forms the baseline for a successful deal. If you want to customize your project to find the maximum solar developer fee we can offer, use our more detailed Project Optimizer. This is available free of charge to our Partners under the SolRiver Developer Platform.
