Whether it's a energy producing endeavor or an energy saving retrofit, Greener Earth has a solution. Regardless of the technology, we'll help you utilize the agreements you have with the investment grade rated entities you are working with to receive up to 100% financing that requires no equity and no lien on assets.

Sample Applications:

|  Gasification

Sample Problem:
 A developer needs 30% equity to get a bank loan to construct and operate a gasification plant that takes municipal waste and creates electricity.

 Our Solution: we'll work with the developer to utilize their tipping fee agreement as collateral for a loan. The funds from that loan can be invested into the project as equity, completing the capital stack.   


|  Solar

Sample Problem:
 An installer of solar panels needs 100% financing to purchase panels and install them on a corporate campus.

 Our Solution: we'll work with the installer's agreement with the corporation and use it as collateral for a 100% debt loan that does not put a lien on the panels or the land the panels are installed on.   


|  Biomass

Sample Problem:
 A renewable energy developer has hired a very large EPC contractor to build and maintain a biomass refinery that will create fuel to run electricity producing turbines. The electricity will be sold through a PPA to a large utility company, but the developer still needs up to 100% financing.

 Our Solution: we'll work with the renewable energy developer to enter into an agreement with the EPC contractor that can be used as collateral for a 100% debt loan. No equity is needed to be invested by the developer nor EPC contractor, and no liens are placed on the assets. 


|  Wood Pellets

Sample Problem:
 A wood pellet manufacturer needs equity to get a bank loan backed by a USDA loan guarantee in order to build a pellet manufacturing plant. The manufacturer has a supply agreement with a utility company who can't purchase enough wood pellets in the current market.

Our Solution
we'll work with the pellet manufacturer's supply agreement to use it as collateral for a loan. The funds from that loan can be invested into the project as equity, completing the capital stack. 

|  Energy Retrofits

Sample Problem:
 A contractor is working with a school district to install new equipment  and technology that will cut down on energy costs. The contractor needs financing now to  purchase the technology. 

 Our Solution: we'll work with the contractor to enter into an agreement with the school district to use as collateral for a loan. The school district can pay for the service and equipment over time, after they've received the financial savings, keeping them from having to come out of pocket.
