Capital Lease Financing

100% financing, meaning zero capital outlay, and in most cases results in cash flow positive. This is an on-balance sheet option, and is most commonly compared with a standard loan. With a capital lease you can pay a reasonable interest rate over 3+ years, at the end of the term the buyout for the equipment is $1. For projects less than $100,000 we will only need an application for credit approval, and we will give you an answer in less than 48 hours.

Ablaze Recommendations on Capital Lease

If you can utilize the tax benefits from the accelerated depreciation and tax credits associated with efficiency and renewables, and you would like to keep your cash on hand and leverage your investment, than this option is best for you. In almost ALL cases Ablaze Energy systems and applications are cash flow positive from day one, meaning that we finance 100% of the cost and the debt service is less than the money that you’re saving.

Operating Lease Financing (Tax Lease)

A commercial operating lease is the best option for an entity that has no need for the available tax credits, such as municipalities, non-profit organizations, or businesses without adequate profits to take advantage of the credits and depreciation. In a normal Tax Lease, the Financial Institution retains the ownership of the asset. This allows for a potentially longer term of sometimes 10+years. Some Financial Institutions will do shorter terms with a balloon payment. The expectation is that asset will be refinanced.

Ablaze Recommendations on Operating Lease:

Typical Candidates:
Government/municipal entities
– includes public schools
– special improvement districts
Non profit entities
Any business that cannot utilize tax credits due to not having sufficient income
Any business trying to minimize assets for any reason

Energy Service Agreement (Specifically for Lighting and efficiency projects):

This financing model is off balance sheet, Ablaze Energy will guarantee certain savings with efficiency measures, and we will charge a fraction of those savings monthly to recoup our costs. Essentially, let your utility company pay for your new equipment, and increase your financial position in the process as this is always a cash flow positive option.

Power Purchase Agreement (Specifically for Solar Energy projects):

PPA financing is generally available only to larger commercial, public or municipal, or utility scale projects; this is due to the high cost of organizing and structuring the PPA. However, this is a very powerful way of financing systems for many companies that cannot put together a way to finance up-front investment of solar energy and capitalize on the incentives and rebates, or for an entity that cannot take advantage of the tax credits.
