Solar Farm Distributed Generation Market Drivers

Important Legislative Market Drivers:
  • Greenhouse Gas legislation that requires cities and businesses to reduce fossil fuel use.
  • Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) requires utilities to produce 33% of their energy with renewable energy by 2020.
  • Distributed Generation-providing energy at the load. Not tied to transmission lines.
  • Feed in-tariffs. Pricing renewable energy to include certain avoided cost benefits and to encourage points 1-3 above. SB 32 coming online in Q2 2013 for <3MW systems.
  • Environmental. Air and water quality standards not met with non-renewable electrical generation fuels in new facilities.

Welcome to Solar Land Partners

Many hundreds of new 1-20MW solar projects have been started in the past 24 months. Often potential investment or acquisition groups, and smaller developers need assistance with:

  • Due Diligence for acquisition
  • Project financial modeling
  • Completion of development tasks

Ninety percent of these projects do not get to the finish line.

Solar Land Partners (SLP) is a professional services company made up of energy utility, interconnection, real estate, permitting, solar, finance and legal professionals formed to get land sites "shovel ready" for solar EPC construction. For investor groups, we can work with you to increase the IRR of your solar investment acquisitions. We also partner with developer groups to help them get their project to the finish line.

With our team of leading Solar investment professionals, Solar Land Partners provides the know-how to create a bankable solar project.

Solar Investment Due Diligence

Fred W., a well respected energy attorney says;

  • "I'd say about 1/2 of the projects currently in CA's queues would benefit from SLP's expertise--many have almost no chance of being built, given the development plan (or lack of one) in place."

  • We Are Experts In:

    • Obtaining interconnection agreements via CAISO SGIP/LGIP or other programs
    • Modelling project financials to create a bankable project that can obtain the construction funding it requires.
    • Proposing and negotiating PPA agreements with IOUs via RPS RFO process
    • Legal work required to dissolve project barriers
    • Start to finish completion of the development phase for 1-20MW Utility Scale projects
