Uses of Development Loans

Developers face a number of capital-intensive barriers to bringing projects to fruition throughout the project lifecycle. SolRiver addresses these needs with creative, developer-friendly financing solutions. Our flexible strategy of providing capital at critical stages ensures developers can overcome barriers and unlock project potential.

Early-Stage Traditional project financiers look for de-risked portfolios, creating a market gap for development-stage capital solutions. SolRiver’s early-stage development loans can fund:

  • IX Deposits
  • Long-Lead Equipment Deposits
  • PPA Bid Deposits

Mid to Late-Stage  These projects have strong intrinsic value that typically cannot be unlocked until the project is sold. SolRiver can lend against future purchase value of late-stage projects to fund:

  • Return of Capital to Developer
  • Bridge-Loans For Future Development Fees
  • Approved Development Expenses
