Panel Discussion
STRUCTURING A BANKABLE MERCHANT SOLAR DEAL

Join this session for a specific breakdown of potential merchant structures (corporate PPA, PPA with an intermediary, hedging contracts, fully merchant) and the pros, cons and revenue streams of each option. We will learn what a project sponsor needs to do to get these projects over the line and outline lenders’ appetite for merchant projects – which of the banks are comfortable with these deals and how will lenders approach each structure?
