NYGB and Bank of America Merrill co-invested in an approximately US$14.0 million tax-exempt equipment lease issued under the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York’s tax-exempt leasing program. The Lease will finance energy improvements, that will replace existing infrastructure at Hebrew Home for the Aged (“HHAR”)’s, Riverdale, New York facility with cleaner, more efficient equipment, generating substantial savings for Hebrew Home immediately and throughout the 20+ year lifetime of the equipment. The Lease, made under DASNY’s TELP, enables the tax-exempt financing for the Project and reduces borrowing costs to HHAR. NYGB’s participation in this transaction is significant because it extends the tenor of the Lease beyond the number of years BofA Merrill would normally finance, enabling deeper energy retrofits and less expenditures for HHAR – resulting in savings of approximately $1.6 million per year. A portion of those savings will be used for lease payments and the remainder will go directly to HHAR.

CEFC committed up to AU$50 million in senior debt finance to the AU$100 million IIG Solar Income Fund, which is managed by the Impact Investment Group. The IIG Solar Income Fund finances medium-scale Australian solar farms, providing equity investment opportunities for high net worth individuals, smaller institutional investors and foundations.

The IIG Solar Income Fund acquires solar projects after the completion of construction and has secured exclusive rights to acquire projects from the Impact Investment Group, enabling the group to continue its development of further solar projects. The CEFC’s involvement in the IIG Solar Income Fund broadens and deepens the range of finance products available to the renewable energy sector. This complements the CEFC’s direct finance for large-scale solar projects, as well as its co-financing programs with banks and other providers that enable businesses to finance the installation of rooftop solar.

NYGB financing will create a borrowing history for a relatively new structure that can be replicated with NYCHA and other New York State public housing authorities that seek to utilize private capital financing for similar types of building upgrades.

CEFC made a AU$75 million cornerstone equity commitment to Palisade Renewable Energy Fund (PREF), which is seeking to attract commitments from mid-tier and large institutional investors, to invest alongside co-investors, also managed by Palisade. These Mid-tier investors have historically had limited exposure to renewable energy investment opportunities because in many cases they lack the scale to be direct investors. The PREF, managed by Palisade Investment Partners (Palisade), has a target size of AU$500 million and invests in renewable energy projects in Australia.

PREF, one of Australia’s first dedicated renewable energy funds of significant scale, provides investors access to the Australian renewable energy sector through the acquisition and development of more than 500MW in renewable energy projects. PREF will primarily focus on large-scale solar and wind projects. It will benefit from Palisade’s comprehensive mapping of wind and solar farm development opportunities in Australia.

NYGB initially provided a US$25.0 million term loan facility to PP to finance the deployment of fuel cell systems powering forklifts in distribution centers across NYS. This loan was expanded to US$45 million in 2017.The Facility will allow PP immediate access to needed capital that is currently held as cash collateral in restricted accounts, rather than waiting for it to be released over time as payments are made through sale-leasebacks arrangements with tax equity providers. NYGB’s participation in this transaction is significant because it enables PP to deploy more systems and convert more forklift fleets in a shorter amount of time than would otherwise be possible under their current financial arrangement.

This transaction constitutes NYGB’s first investment in the fuel cell industry, which is still relatively small nationally but growing at an above-market average rate. As a result, many firms in the industry experience high borrowing costs. NYGB participation in the transaction aims to address those high costs for PP and other similar companies in the sector by making otherwise restricted capital available to PP, so they can continue scaling their business, including to the levels where capital costs are expected to be significantly reduced.

A debt finance commitment of up to AU$120 million from the CEFC is demonstrating the bankability of large-scale renewable energy projects which have not achieved 100 per cent energy offtake agreements through long-term contracted power purchase agreements (PPAs). The CEFC is one of the co-financiers in the development of the AU$588 million 270MW Sapphire Wind Farm between Glen Innes and Inverell in northern New South Wales.

Project developer CWP Renewables secured a 20-year feed-in-tariff from the ACT Government for 100MW of Sapphire’s output and will trade the remainder of the project’s output on a merchant basis. The 270MW Sapphire Wind Farm, located between Glen Innes and Inverell in northern NSW, will feature the latest Vestas turbine technology, as well as transformers manufactured in Australia.

In a boost to the local community, the project will contribute to a Community Fund at the rate of AU$2,500 per turbine per year over the life of the project, to support local community interest groups and activities. Community members, local council and project representatives will jointly manage the Community Fund.

NY Green Bank has entered into two transactions with SolarCity Corporation to accelerate the deployment of solar projects across New York State. The two transactions fund, respectively, a static pool of SolarCity’s existing solar assets (US$20 million revolving credit facility), and new solar projects ($US30 million term loan facility) – as one provides a five-year non-recourse term loan, and the other provides construction financing for SolarCity’s upcoming solar projects in New York. The post-construction term loan facility was arranged by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, a global corporate and investment bank engaged by SolarCity. SolarCity is the largest residential solar provider in NY.

NYGB’s participation provides SolarCity additional financial flexibility, and helps to strengthen the medium-term lending market as an alternative to refinancing through the traditional asset-backed security market or private placement market. This transaction demonstrates NYGB’s continued success in enhancing liquidity, decreasing the cost of capital for solar developers and installers, and helping reduce the cost of solar power to customers.
