Local, state, and federal agencies are well-positioned to benefit from solar energy. Whether they want to own a solar installation, contract to buy the clean energy at a fixed low rate for the next 10-20 years, or just purchase maintenance and repair services for an existing project— Borrego Solar can help.
Typically, public sector clients own plenty of property suitable for solar, prefer long-term planning, and have superior credit ratings. These characteristics present a multitude of potential financing options and arrangements to choose from. We provide
- Solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC),
- Solar financing, and
- Operations and Maintenance (O&M) services
to government and other public sector customers in Massachusetts, California, and New York.
Flexible Financing for Public Sector Solar Projects in CA, MA and NY
Borrego Solar works closely with agency managers and board members to identify optimal solar and PV financing solutions that deliver the greatest value with the least amount of risk. Having worked with many tax-exempt entities at the local, state, and federal levels—each with its own procurement requirements—we know what it means to be resource constrained and risk averse.
Popular Financing Options Available for Public Sector Solar Installations:
- Power Purchasing Agreement (PPA)
- Direct Purchase
- Tax Exempt Municipal Leases
- General Obligation Bonds (G.O. Bonds)
- Clean Renewable Energy Bonds (CREBS)
“North Adams’ transition to solar is in a way, reminiscent of the City’s manufacturing past, as many of our old mills utilized water as a renewable resource. This solar project illustrates the community’s successful efforts to reestablish a commitment to renewable energy. Additionally, the project speaks to the City we have become: a destination for culture, education, art and technology. We’re pleased to see that the City’s sustainability efforts have influenced local businesses to adopt solar and the community to embrace more energy conservation and sustainability measures.”Richard Alcombright, Mayor, City of North Adams

Our process is transparent and educational. We provide step-by-step guidance, as we understand that rate tariffs and interval data analysis isn’t typically our customer’s core competency.

“In terms of challenges with this project, there really weren’t any. We have a great partner in the Anaheim Public Utility and a great partner with Borrego Solar.”Tom Morton, Executive Director, Anaheim Convention Center
