Competitive Energy Insight (CEI) of San Diego has announced the addition of several enhancements to the EconExpert financial model. These enhancements include features for the evaluation of partnerships for wind, solar and biomass projects that address a multitude of alternative techniques to efficiently monetize tax benefits, including the production tax credits and accelerated depreciation available for wind projects and biomass projects, and the investment tax credits available for solar projects.
‘These Excel-based tools are completely customizable and allow developers to efficiently evaluate every transaction in a standardized platform, while accounting for every consideration in the deal from the perspective of any stakeholder in a wind project transaction,’ says Steve Provol, president of CEI. ‘Developers can focus on project development and closing without having to carry the overhead of development and maintenance of complex legacy spreadsheets.’
