This model is a detailed solar farm financial model. The purpose of this model is to evaluate the value to investors of potential solar farm development, including the ability to gear into the project to optimize returns to equity.

A typical debt structure as seen in industry has been modeled, although further optimizations may be available to particular solar farms based on individual project characteristics.

NOTE: This model includes macros that are used to optimize the amount of debt borrowed and the payment profile. You will need to enable macros to ensure that this model can work properly.
