Project Developers: Meet Your Lender

At Live Oak Bank, we’re excited to be part of the renewable energy financing movement, and we want to help you grow your business. Because our renewable energy financing team is keenly focused on loans for solar, storage and various other technologies nationwide, we offer solar project developers and their tax equity partners a first-class lending experience.

The following details will help us expedite your loan process:

  • Size of system in MW (ac)
  • Power purchase agreement off-taker, term and price per kW hour
  • Estimated total project cost
  • Requested loan amount

When interest rates for renewable energy projects fluctuate, how can a developer gain certainty in the market to ensure their project moves forward? Live Oak Bank offers a Rate Lock Option to protect solar project economics against future movements in interest rates.

Why Choose a Rate Lock Option?

  • Flexible terms; longer than standard amortizations
  • National lending footprint
  • Significant funding resources that grow with your needs
