Third-Party Financed Renewable Energy Projects
Many UNC campuses are interested in third-party financed renewable energy projects, such as the installation of solar thermal panels to provide hot water for residence hall use. Renewable energy tax credits provide an opportunity for investors that may benefit campuses.
Representatives of the State Energy Office, UNC-General Administration, the UNC School of Government, and NC State University have been working to develop and document a process to support campuses in pursuit of these renewable energy opportunities. Draft processes and template documents are being provided for input from the larger community of prospective users, including campuses, subject-matter experts, renewable developers, and prospective investors.
