Sustainable Energy Fund achieves its mission by assisting energy users in overcoming financial and educational barriers to a sustainable energy future.
To help you, here is a list of options through which almost any business can make the installation and operation of renewable energy generation and energy efficiency projects economically viable.
SELF-FUNDED - Businesses can use current budgetary allocations, increased cash flow through utility savings, and cash reserves to implement projects.
ENVIRONMENTAL ATTRIBUTES - Utilities and other organizations utilize these commodities to comply with environmental regulations. When monetized, these commodities can create an income stream to help fund projects.
GOVERNMENTAL SUBSIDIES - Local, state, and Federal governments offer a variety of programs including technical support, tax credits, tax deductions, grants, loan guarantees, and more.
UTILITY INCENTIVES - Act 129 legislation, which became effective in November 2008 in Pennsylvania, requires Pennsylvania Electric Distribution Companies (EDCs) to cost-effectively reduce electricity consumption and peak demand on their systems. To achieve this end, EDC's have implemented a broad variety of programs and incentives for ratepayers.
THIRD PARTY - Third parties such as Sustainable Energy Fund, banks, and tax equity investors offer a variety of funding mechanisms including loans, leases, purchase agreements, and performance contracts as well as direct equity and tax equity investments.
