Wednesday, September 26, 2018. 1:00PM Eastern. 2018 Tribal Energy Webinar: Facility- and Community-Scale Project Development. Sponsored by Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs. More information here.
Taking on facility-and community-scale energy projects can be a good way for tribes to gain experience and expertise in project development while limiting risk, but like utility-scale projects, these projects also have their own unique challenges. For example, tribes often run into difficulty when it comes to finding money to build these smaller-scale projects. This webinar will outline options for financing and addressing other challenges related to facility- and community-scale project development. Attendees will learn about available financing mechanisms that can allow tribes to develop projects with limited to no upfront capital costs, including community solar models, third-party vendors, energy savings performance contracts, and utility energy service contracts.
