Renewable Energy Tax Credit
Leverage Law Group is an active participant in this emerging and highly specialized area of tax credit law. Renewable Energy Tax Credits (“RETCs”) are financial incentives to assist the development, implementation, and use of clean, renewable energy projects.
RETCs promote the investment of capital resources in the purchase and installation of equipment for the production of energy. RETCs are generated at the project level when the production equipment is placed in service.
The attorneys of Leverage Law Group represent one of the largest investors in the RETC industry in connection with “green energy” projects. As counsel to RETC investors, the firm is responsible for structuring the transaction and preparing and negotiating operating agreements, lease agreements, real estate acquisition and disposition documents, power purchase agreements, engineering procurement and installation agreements, and other appropriate documentation at various levels throughout the selected RETC structure. The firm also has significant experience representing developers of RETC projects, and is involved in all aspects of structuring transactions to maximize the aggregate benefit to the firm’s client.
Leverage Law Group has developed particular expertise in combining RETC structures with NMTC, tax-exempt finance and other tax-advantaged arrangements to provide additional leveraged benefits which can mean the difference in making worthy projects economically viable to all transaction participants.
