purchasing and ownership structures

We got you covered.

AEP Energy has the broad depth of experience and resources that allow us to create the right ownership option and solution for your needs, and the nimbleness to get it done. Once you determine which onsite solar or distributed energy resource solution is physically and financially viable at your site, you’ll need to determine how you will procure and finance the system. AEP Energy will help guide you through this process and make recommendations that make sense for your sustainability goals and budget. Generally, there are two purchasing and ownership structures that dominate the U.S. market for business customers – third-party ownership or direct ownership.

third-party ownership

End-to-end management with no upfront capital.

Determining how to finance your sustainability or resiliency solution can be daunting. In addition to determining if you have the resources to fund the project, you need to assess whether you have the risk tolerance or resources to manage your solution throughout the development process and throughout the life of the solution.

If those factors aren’t an option, third-party ownership could be the right financing approach for your organization. As your third-party ownership partner, there are no up-front costs and you receive the environmental benefits that your solution provides. We’ll guide you every step of the way, from design and development to operations and maintenance, to make sure your solution operates as it should.  Benefits include:

  •  Zero up-front capital required
  •  Project manage, from initial design to long-term operations

Owning has its benefits.

When you finance your organization’s onsite solar or distributed energy resource solution yourself, you reap the benefits such as the energy offset and behind-the-meter savings, as well as from federal tax credits and tax depreciation benefits. These benefits reduce the overall cost of the system, however, they do not relieve you from other construction or operation costs and risks. Benefits include:

  • Receive direct savings and tax credits
  • Higher degree of hands-on involvement in project

The energy industry is flooded with suppliers. It’s often difficult to believe people you speak with over the phone without meeting them in person. Jack, however, I felt was honest and trustworthy.
