Potential C2F Project: Solar



  • A solar developer is considering an investment but the maximum price of power an off-taker will pay is lower than the levelized cost of solar power
  • High GHG reductions are possible due as the solar power will offset fossil fuel consumption


  • High upfront costs
  • The Return on Equity (RoE) of the project for the developer is below the expected RoE for power plants with similar technology risks

C2F Solution

  • The Canadian Climate Fund can provide senior and/or subordinated debt (up to $30M) and at the rate below market necessary to bring the project to as close as possible to a market RoE.
