Renewable Energy Project Finance Analysis at NREL
Here’s the latest from the Finance Analysis Team at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
NREL recently published a case study describing an innovative municipal financing structure for a solar PV installation in Yolo County, California.
The project is noteworthy because it represents the first known use of qualified energy conservation bonds (QECBs) and the first known combined use of QECBs and clean renewable energy bonds (CREBs) in the country.
This article outlines the process the county underwent to finance the installation as well as the strategies for optimizing the use of these new bond tools.
