Guaranteed WindPower

Jupiter developed the Guaranteed WindPower system in order to decrease the cost of renewable energy and to increase the value of renewable energy assets.

 

The best way to do this is to allocate risk to the parties that are best able to understand the risk.

 

By transferring the risk, we lower the cost of capital for the project and increase the value of the project.

 

Like leasing structures, provides 100% finance

 

Like Natural Gas Prepayments, can provide off-credit treatment during the guarantee period

 

The system reinforces renewable energy development fundamentals because the guarantors (the parties taking the risk) have strict underwriting guidelines

 

 

 

The benefits for developers and investors are optimized for both book and tax treatment.
