BQ Energy (“BQ”) is a renewable energy project developer specializing in landfill and brownfield site redevelopment.
BQ and NY Green Bank have closed on the first transaction of an anticipated US$30.0 million portfolio that will utilize the same standardized approach for upcoming projects. In this arrangement, BQ will receive a $USD 1.5 million construction loan to finance a 1.37 megawatt solar project located on a closed municipal landfill located in Patterson, NY. Upon completion, the construction loan will be refinanced with a term loan provided by NYGB. Solar power from this project will be used by a Hudson Valley institution to power its facilities using New York State’s remote net metering.

NYGB’s participation in the Project – and in similar developments in the proposed portfolio arrangement – will help expand financing opportunities for smaller (less than 10.0 MW) solar systems by fostering standardization in several respects. First, this portfolio of projects will use the same approach – including BQ’s retaining the same balance of plant contractorfor the majority of the portfolio projects – along with a streamlined, uniform approach to developing contracts and using the same equipment in each portfolio project. Second, the underwriting process will be standardized, specifically as relates to remote net metering, which can be replicated for other transactions, including those with counterparties that do not have a rating provided by a rating agency.

Mosaic is a financial technology company which, utilizing a third party contractor network, provides homeowners with loans to finance the installation of solar systems on their homes. At the request of Guggenheim Partners, a global investment and advisory financial services firm, and in partnership with Germany’s DZ BANK, NYGB participated in a US$110.0 million senior secured credit facility in April 2016. Since the close of the original credit facility, Mosaic’s loan originations are occurring at a faster pace nationally than previously anticipated and, simultaneously, Mosaic and its network of developers are increasingly focused on NYS. Following the success of Mosaic’s loan product and the strong performance of the loans within the credit facility, Mosaic sought increased credit availability to satisfy demand for their loan product. Mosaic requested NYGB and private capital providers to participate in a US$130.0 million increase of the original facility, bringing the total size to US$240.0 million (the “Credit Facility”), with an additional US$40.0 million from NYGB and $90.0 million from BNP Paribas, a global bank and financial services company.

Launched in March 2013 and running through FY15, the CT Solar Loan was a US$10 million pilot public-private partnership between CT Green Bank and Sungage Financial, with support from ARRA funds. The partnership enabled Sungage Financial to offer the CT Solar Loan, with up to US$55,000 per loan with 15-year maturity terms and 6.49% interest rates (including 0.25% ACH payment benefit). This allowed homeowners to benefit from 30% Investment Tax Credit (ITC) accessible to those who own PV panels.

The CT Solar Loan program was possible through credit enhancements (i.e.,US $300,000 loan loss reserve and US$168,000 interest rate buy-downs from repurposed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds) in combination with a US$5 million warehouse of funds and US$1 million of subordinated debt from the Connecticut Green Bank. It resulted in the first crowd-funded solar loan program in the country when US$1M of the loan portfolio was purchased by crowd-funding project finance firms Mosaic and Mission Markets and another US$2.6M was purchased by the Reinvestment Fund (a CDFI). And in late 2015, Sungage Financial graduated to a US$100 million pool of capital from the Digital Federal Credit Union, without further Green Bank support, to enable citizens to own solar PV systems installed on their homes.

NYGB has provided two letters of credit totaling US$5.5 million to New York-based Energy Improvement Corporation (“EIC”), a not-for-profit, local development corporation formed to promote and facilitate meaningful energy savings through energy efficiency and renewable generation improvements to existing properties throughout New York State.

EIC’s Energize NY Finance product uses the Property Assessed Clean Energy (“PACE”) loan mechanism to finance qualified energy improvements to buildings for commercial property owners and not-for-profits located in participating NYS municipalities. Under the PACE structure, commercial and not-for-profit real estate owners can effectively borrow to finance energy improvements to their properties and repay this debt through additional finance charges that are included in the property tax bills collected by the participating municipalities. The letters of credit are expected to accelerate the expansion of EIC’s municipal membership, resulting in more than 550 PACE projects. This represents ~150.5 million in total project costs.

CEFC committed up to AU$20 million in cornerstone debt finance for the development of the Barcaldine Solar Farm in Central Queensland. The AU$69 million 20MW AC (25MW DC) solar farm is expected to generate enough power each year to satisfy the needs of around 5,300 households. The Barcaldine Solar Farm’s location on the fringe of the National Energy Market grid will significantly reduce network losses experienced by the current transmission feed from Clermont, which is about 660 kilometres to the east. In addition, it will demonstrate how building new capacity around the grid can lead to significant saving in grid expansion and upgrade costs.

The experience developed from building a solar PV farm in a fringe-of-grid area will demonstrate the potential for solar projects to increase the reliability and quality of power at fringe-of-grid locations. This experience can also provide useful lessons for the future rollout of off-grid remote area solar PV projects, such as those serving remote communities and mining operations.
