Update: this press release updates information originally set forth in a press release dated November 4, 2016
SAN DIEGO, Nov. 7, 2016 /CNW/ -- OneRoof Energy, Inc. ("OneRoof"), a residential solar services provider and wholly-owned subsidiary of OneRoof Energy Group, Inc. (TSXV:ON) announced today that it has closed solar financing funds with unrelated third-party investors that will finance over $17 million of residential solar projects to be originated with homeowners located in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey and New York. The third party investors will provide the tax equity portion of these funds and OneRoof will provide the sponsor equity. These transactions are expected to serve as templates for additional funds with these investors, the documentation of which should be substantially streamlined for follow on transactions.
"The company is very excited to have closed these latest rounds of project financing, and looks forward to working on future transactions with both of these partners," commented David Field, president and CEO of OneRoof. "These new funds enable us to continue to expand our installation base and provide more affordable clean power to customers across the country."
OneRoof has up to eighteen (18) months to fully utilize these funds. OneRoof will sell residential solar projects to the funds at prices ranging from $3.56/watt up to $4.74/watt, depending on the utility district. As is typical in financings of this nature, the partner receives most of the tax attributes of the fund plus up to 23% of the cash flow for up to six (6) years, at which time partnership allocations change and OneRoof receives 95% of the cash flow for the remaining life of the underlying solar projects. OneRoof will serve as the managing member of the funds and will operate and maintain the solar projects and provide administrative services to the funds for an initial term of ten (10) years, which will automatically extend for an additional five (5) year period unless notice not to extend is provided. OneRoof will also remain the primary point of contact with the applicable homeowners and provide ongoing customer service and support for such matters as home transfers, service interruption remediation and prepayment and early buyouts.
