Tax Credit Financing

Renewable Energy Tax Credits

Hobson Bernardino + Davis LLP attorneys have supported clients in many renewable energy and project finance arrangements.  Our experience includes creating and implementing a variety of financing and investor relationships for renewable energy projects.  These may include bonds, leases, sale-leaseback arrangements and other ownership and investment structures.  We also are experienced in monetizing the environmental attributes of renewable energy, which may have substantial value and provide critical additional revenue.  Our attorneys are sensitive to the unique tax ramifications of renewable energy projects. As such, we specialize in the representation of investors, guarantors, sponsors, syndicators, developers and lenders in all aspects of tax credit transactions, including energy tax credits such as renewable (solar, wind, biomass) electricity credits under the Internal Revenue Code.  We have extensive experience in the issues involved in combining energy credits with LIHTC or NMTC transactions.
