Renewable Energy - Asset Funding


For reference, in case anyone might find it useful, an example of Funder requirements when it comes to renewable assets or 'soft' assets...


In order to consider soft assets including renewable assets we are looking for well-established and profitable businesses with a clean credit history. Furthermore there are some additional guidelines – not set in stone, for agricultural businesses:

Owner Farmer – minimum 200 acres for wind turbines, 100 acres for other soft asset types.

Tenant Farmer – minimum 150 acres for soft assets.

Assets: PV, Biomass, Other Renewables and Other 'Soft' Assets.

60 months max term and will consider new only, not used.
