Solar PV Case Study
Solar is a well established, straightforward technology. We selected it suitable for our investors as it offered highly predictable revenues, long term, RPI-linked, Government-backed revenues with highly predictable operation and maintenance costs.
Within the portfolio we arranged investment in businesses which installed and operate residential, roof mounted solar panels. Additionally four companies received funding that operate ground mounted solar arrays ranging in capacity from 6 MWh to 11 MWh. Together these plants generate approximately 32,400 MWh of electricity annually.
