Solar Farm Development Excel Model Template

Complete financial model for financing, building, operating, and selling solar farms.

Description
INTRODUCTION
This financial model can be used to evaluate solar farm development investment opportunities. Its flexibility allows it to analyze investments of any size, and its functionality supports a wide variety of investment scenarios including different capital structures, project timelines, and financial/operating models. Developed by a private equity professional with many years of experience, this financial model comes with a comprehensive set of instructions to maximize its usefulness and contribution in your investment analysis.

MODEL OVERVIEW
Starting with the Assumptions sheet, you will fill out a set of inputs upon which the model will run. The Model sheet will then use these inputs and calculate the solar farm's future financial performance, including pre-construction, construction, operations, and eventual sale. From there, the resulting financial data will be consolidated in the Executive Summary sheet, where an concise and easily understandable overall view of the solar farm's investment potential can be seen. Additionally, the Sensitivity sheet will analyze and compare different investment outcomes based on different scenarios and assumptions; this allows you as an investor to hedge against risks or uncertain characteristics of the solar farm development project.

SUMMARY
This financial model is ideal for evaluating solar farm development projects and displaying their financial viability, which will support you as an investor in making quality investment decisions.

      Hi Brent - this model has an input for total land size (inputted as square meters). This can be found on the Assumptions tab. In the cell directly below this, the model calculates the total acreage, and in this way you can easily know how many acres your project is.

        The model looks great.
        The debt calculations does it cater for sculpting option?

          Hi Tome - thank you for your question!

          The debt structure begins as an interest-only construction loan, so no principal payments are made during this time. There is an interest reserves functionality, where a pool of capital is set aside in order to service these interest payments (during the period of time where construction is still undergoing, so there is no operating income to service the interest).

          Once the solar farm is up and running, the construction loan's principal is paid off, and then any proceeds after that are returned to investors.
