Renewable Energy and other “Green Initiatives”  

Many new and innovative technologies are coming into the marketplace that helps alleviate both the growing “garbage” and energy problems facing us today. SGC can fund the large initial infrastructure costs typically associated with these types of projects and in so doing, can defer early repayment requirements until the facility is up and running and producing energy from waste. Corporations and municipalities that take the initiative to support these efforts and help in the creation of these facilities earn accolades from shareholders and constituents alike and in many cases are able to benefit from tax credits and other special treatment offered by the Government. In addition, participating in these projects is a big “win” for the corporate or government entity because there are large amounts of waste that need to be disposed of and they can now work with a waste to energy developer without laying out capital dollars by simply entering into a long-term waste disposal agreement that contains absolute and unconditional minimum waste disposal fees allowing the developer to use SGC’s Monetization Financing to fund the building of the facility today.

These plants cut down the transportation time and cost of moving waste, and; take away the need to purchase additional landfill sites and/or expand existing sites in the future, and; allow the investment-grade entity to enter into a long-term agreement with the developer that contains a better than market rate for waste disposal, and; allow the investment-grade entity to purchase energy produced from the facility at better than market rates and/or participate in the revenues of energy sold to outside entities, and; all earn all the benefits from a public relations standpoint of going “Green”.

Sample Transaction : A Municipality is in need of an alternative way to dispose of 200 tons of waste per day. After reviewing various technologies and developer proposals the Municipality decides to work with a local developer that has a steam reforming process which will produce a high quality syn-gas product that can be used for energy production or as a building block for transportation fuels. The facility has the ability to accommodate a wide variety of wastes such as municipal solid waste, municipal sewage sludge, animal manures, wood waste, agricultural waste, C&D waste as well as others.

The facility will be constructed on municipal property located adjacent to the existing transfer station and landfill. The developer is able to fund the construction of the facility by entering into a 20 year waste disposal agreement with the Municipality that contains minimum required payments that are significantly less than the current waste disposal fees being paid by the Municipality. SGC provides an amount of funding equal to the present value of the future minimum required payments under the waste disposal agreement.
