AIA credits for this course are available until 10/30/2022. The path to zero energy school construction can be a daunting one. Some issues may seem overwhelming such as, how do you pay for it? Financing renewable energy solutions and energy storage can be the key to a project’s economic viability and achieving the zero energy goal. In this one-hour webinar, hear how energy managers, sustainability professionals, energy consultants, and solar-plus-storage providers assessed various financing options from financiers. Financial instruments considered include tax-exempt leases, sale-leaseback, partnership-flip, and cash purchase scenarios. Participants will learn about cost effective methods to improve energy efficiency, cost-saving methods to procure renewable energy and evaluating life cycle costs in buildings.
