Wind Energy Investment MEMO
My team assessed the economics of a 50.4 MW wind energy project for a Tax Equity Investor. We started by modeling the wind measurement data from the site and forecasting the energy generation capacity of the wind farm.
Various original project contracts were then evaluated and summarized including the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Credit Agreement, Service and Maintenance Agreement, Operations and Maintenance Agreement (O&M) and a Construction Services Agreement.
The economics of these contracts were then modeled in Excel and scenario-based sensitivity studies were conducted to assess the project's benefits and risks to a Tax Equity Investor. The final result was this investment committee memo, designed to serve as a benchmark template for looking at renewable energy project finance deals.
