How are Green Assets Funded?

The great news is there are a plethora of green finance funding options at your disposal.

Transaction sizes for green finance can range from £5k to £5m+ and we are able to offer fixed competitive rentals for whatever green financial option you choose – but these are the most common:

Green Finance Lease

Green Finance lease is a popular agreement for businesses that wish to acquire green-technology products or infrastructure but do not have enough cash on hand to pay for them in one lump sum. The Green Finance lease allows businesses with little capital at their disposal to acquire expensive technology, such as solar panels or wind turbines, by paying for them in monthly installments over a period of several years.

Hire Purchase For Green Assets

Hire Purchase provides a way to spread payments for investment over time. At the end of the term, you can pay off the cost of the asset in one lump sum, or purchase it outright with no further payments. Hire Purchase is commonly used for investment purchases with a resell value, such as electric vehicles, renewable energy machinery, and construction and commercial equipment used to lower a companies carbon footprint.

Business Loan For Renewable Projects

Business loans are a form of credit designed to meet the borrowing needs of commercial enterprises and other established organizations that are looking to fund renewable energy assets or infrastructure. A typical business loan is amortised over an agreed period of time and maybe either be secured or unsecured, although secured loans are more prevalent due to their lower interest rates.

Operating Lease For Green Solutions

If organizations want to preserve capital and take advantage of renewable energy cost savings without any up-front investment, a 7-Year Operating Lease may be an option. This innovative financing option allows organisations to reap the benefits that come from ownership while providing them with long-term savings. The long terms of these leases means that businesses can purchase renewable systems without a big capital investment, and this can help them meet their environmental sustainability goals as well.

Receivables Finance

Receivables financing is a method businesses use to generate funds from the receivables (amounts owed to the business by its customers) in their accounts receivable. It can help businesses financially if they need to invest in renewables and infrastructure.

Sale and Leaseback

A company may sell an asset and then lease it (known as a sale-and-leaseback arrangement) to free up cash tied up in the asset or to keep the asset and the liability off of the company's balance sheet. A capital lease, which is another way that a company can arrange this type of deal, allows the company to keep the asset but use it as if it was owned; however, because the lease payment is treated as an expense rather than a debt, this type of arrangement frees up more cash for the company.

“Bancroft's School have used Axis Leasing since 2009. They have always handled the "middle man" part of the leasing process (between ourselves and the preferred competitive broker) impeccably. We are always kept up to date with the progress of the leasing lifecycle, from initial discussions, through to final sign off after successful installations, and with diligent after care support. The team at Axis is always attentive to our needs, communication is always timely, and they have consistently been a pleasure to deal with. I envisage using Axis for many years to come. ”
