3 Steps for successful financing

  1. Risk evaluation & Project validation:

    In our due diligence process we will evaluate your financial situation and evaluate the risk of the project. In case the evaluation has been successful, we can validate the project and proceed to step 2.

  2. Equipment loan

    We will provide equipment necessary for construction of the solar plant (60% ~ 80% of total project cost). A first down payment from the client will be necessary (20% ~ 40% (non-refundable)).

  3. Monthly payback

    The last step of succesful funding is the payback of the loan. The loan will be payed back in monthly installments and can be adjusted in time and amount of payback installment.
