Jump to...


Partner Robert Freedman (New York-Project Development & Finance) and associates Monica Lamb (New York-Project Development & Finance) and Abiola Fasehun (New York-Corporate) published an article titled “Capturing Value in the Solar Industry” in the New York Law Journal on May 18.

The authors discuss how developers and operators have captured additional value in solar industry assets by structuring portfolios that can be financed more efficiently at the back end of the asset value chain. According to the authors, solar energy demand was previously motivated largely by tax incentives and renewable portfolio requirements imposed on utilities. Now, they maintain, the long-term budgetary, planning and sustainability needs of households and large commercial and industrial power users are likely to become the primary drivers of demand, as tax incentives decline and the modes of delivering electricity service evolve.
