What do we consider when investing pre-construction capital? Several things.
The project will lead to reduced greenhouse gas emissions or other positive environmental impact.
Ideally the project is located in a state with strong pro-renewable energy policies.
Ideally the developer has experience in the field and a track record of completing similar projects.
The developer has a lease, purchase option, or site control agreement.
Permitting and Construction:
The developer has thoroughly assessed technology and construction feasibility, understands local permitting regulations, and will hire an experienced EPC to execute the project.
Operations and Maintenance:
The developer is experienced at operating and maintaining similar projects or has contracted with an experienced operator.
The developer has agreements in place, or a clear path forward, for sale of any generated power or gas.
