How COVID-19 Is Impacting Renewable Tax Equity Transactions


As the COVID-19 crisis continues to affect every corner of the economy, McDermott continues to interact with industry leaders to provide the latest market updates on the severe disruption and uncertainty brought on the renewables industry by COVID-19.


Joining us will be Paragon Energy Capital’s Managing Director Ben Jacoby, who has over 20 years of experience in the financing, development and asset management of independent power generation facilities, and is a co-founder of Paragon. At Paragon, Ben principally advises project sponsors and investors on solar and wind tax equity and M&A transactions.

During our webinar, we’ll answer:

  • Four weeks in, what is happening to availability of tax equity for wind and solar projects as a result of the COVID-19 crisis?
  • How are COVID-19 delays impacting the ability of sponsors to meet ITC and PTC safe harbor guidelines?
  • How are the rates and terms changing for new tax equity deals?
  • Who’s in and who’s out of the tax equity market?
