Nola Capital Corporation
Funding for waste-to-energy projects is an area of finance that requires a specialized expertise. As to be expected,
the more operating history a plant has, the easier it is to obtain financing on terms that are acceptable. However,
even startups can be financed if the right ingredients are in place. Waste-to-energy financing can be applied to
many forms of alternative energy including incineration, gasification, pyrolysis and other proven methods of
converting waste to energy.
Projects We Particularly Like
We are most interested in projects where we can take a portion of our compensation in the form of a long term
participation in the project’s future profitability.
There is currently an increased interest in clients wanting to expand their operations. There is also an increasing
interest in obtaining financing that protects against future costs of capital by locking in a cost of money on
terms that best fit each company's long term needs.
There are a number of ways to finance these situations, however, normal requirements will include financial
modeling, a PPA, a feedstock agreement, a business plan and other items that explain the project and support the
need for capital.
Typical Types of Financing
- Expansion of an existing plant
- Raising additional working capital by monetizing existing assets
- Cashing out shareholders
- Raising cash to complete an acquisition or to avoid using stock in the transaction
- Financing construction and initiating the operation of a new plant
We also consider renewable energy projects such as hydropower, solar, biomass and wind power. Financing with
terms as long as 40 years can be provided to qualified projects.
