THE NEED FOR CAPITAL

Early-stage projects need access to capital.

Developers face a variety of barriers to bring projects to reality. At the same time, the world needs more renewable energy capacity than ever to fight climate change.

Policy Uncertainty

Developers are risking their own sweat and capital in new markets where legislation is in flux and offtake can be unknown.

Project Delays

Permitting and interconnection often takes longer than expected, depleting cash reserves and delaying payouts. 

Lack of Early-Stage Financing

Asset owners and project financiers look for large, de-risked portfolios. There is a market gap for development-stage capital solutions.

FINANCING SOLUTIONS

Control your own destiny with flexible capital options.

At Leyline, we understand the challenges that renewable energy developers face – and the importance of having early-stage capital available to accelerate opportunities. How? We’ve been in your shoes.

Leyline Growth

Ideal for newly formed developers, project debt earns interest on profits over the long term from current and future portfolios.

  • Early-stage
  • Small, upstart developers

Leyline Develop

Developers that are “mid-sized” obtain debt that earns interest that is limited to a particular market or portfolio.

  • Early- to mid-stage
  • “Mid-sized” developers

Leyline Bridge

Late-stage projects or portfolios can receive permanent financing (tax equity or debt) for construction using a “but for” key deliverable approach.

  • Late-stage (pre-construction) projects
  • “Mid-sized” and experienced developers

Leyline Construct

Experienced developers and small IPPs can receive construction capital to bridge projects or portfolios to permanent financing or takeout.

  • Late-stage (pre-construction) projects
  • Experienced developers and small IPPs
