Belleair Bluffs, FL (September 10, 2020) – We are proud to announce that Seminole Financial Services (“Seminole”) has now financed over 1 GW in installed capacity of solar and wind projects throughout the continental U.S. and Hawaii totaling approximately $2 billion in financing.
Seminole, a leading provider of debt and tax credit equity financing for renewable energy transactions up to small-scale utility in size, announced the closing of four more solar transactions totaling $33 million in construction debt. These solar projects, located in North Carolina, have a nameplate capacity of 25.25 MW. In the last 60 days, Seminole has closed on financing for over 50 MW worth of solar projects. Seminole continues to close transactions and support the solar industry during the challenges presented to our industry by COVID-19.

In addition to providing construction loans, mini-perm loans, development loans, and tax credit equity, Seminole now can close long-term debt through the USDA REAP Loan Guarantee Program.
“We are grateful to everyone who has helped us reach another incredible milestone.
