Novogradac & Company LLP Hosts Conference in San Francisco, May 3-4

The implications of tax reform, the state of the tax equity market and the effect of a recently imposed solar tariff are some of the issues that renewable energy practitioners are considering as they finance projects in 2018 and beyond. Those topics and much more will be discussed at the Novogradac 2018 Financing Renewable Energy Tax Credits Conference at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco in San Francisco, May 3-4.

“Since the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act this past December we’ve seen the renewable energy industry respond to the legislation in myriad ways. Changes to transaction structures, investor term sheets, PPA pricing, etc. It would appear many industry participants are still in the process of understanding and assessing how this tax bill will affect them and the renewable energy sector more broadly,” said Stephen Tracy, CPA, conference chairman and partner at Novogradac & Company LLP’s San Francisco office. “Our expert panelists will look to have substantive discussions about how the tax bill changes the development and investment landscape and discuss their thoughts and ideas on how best to incorporate the new provisions into a successful transaction structure.”

Discussion topics will include a practitioners’ roundtable on effects of tax reform, the latest trends affecting debt, sponsor and tax equity financing, in addition to other current topics. A project finance advanced primer pre-conference workshop will also be offered May 2. Separate registration and fees apply. Conference details and the complete conference agenda can be found at
