Policy Alert: Webinar on Debt & Tax Equity for Energy Projects in Indian Country


NAFOA will host the Department of Energy in a webinar designed to discuss debt and tax equity for energy projects in Indian Country, as well as new changes to the DOE’s Loan Programs Office (LPO) on Wednesday, May 18th at 2:00pm Eastern Time.

 Financing energy projects using debt and tax-equity can significantly enhance economic returns and potentially attract a broad range of investors. Debt and tax-equity structures are commonly used in the solar industry today and offer a significant resource for tribes interested in pursuing these projects.

This webinar will cover these financing structures in greater detail and how they can potentially be used with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Tribal Energy Loan Guarantee Program (TELGP).  Representatives from the DOE’s Loan Programs Office (LPO) as well as tax and finance experts will be participating. This webinar will take place May 18th from 2:00pm to 3:00pm Eastern Time and will be recorded. Registration is required to join.

Register for the Webinar on May 18


For any other questions or concerns, please contact Nicholas Lovesee, Senior Policy Advisor, at Nicholas@nafoa.org.
