Abacus Solar/Wind Project Finance Financial Model

Free, open-source financial model for energy and PPP transactions.

Description
Abacus is a bankable, easy-to-use financial model for use in renewable (solar, wind, etc.) energy as well as PPP transactions. Under the open-source model, it is free to use and modify.

Unlike acquisitions or more general finance transactions, project finance transactions require a highly-detailed financial model. Abacus provides cash flow analysis on a monthly basis, helping maximize debt financing and IRRs, and uncover cash flow issues that may arise from seasonal or intermittent revenues and expenses. Abacus includes fully-linked financial statements (income statement, balance sheet, cashflow statement), and over a dozen built-in error checks to guard against unintended mistakes. It also includes two easy-to-use macros which can 1) sculpt project debt to a target debt service coverage ratio (DSCR), and 2) maximize debt used against maximum leverage and minimum DSCR inputs. Abacus also provides summary information ready for presentations to financing parties, including charts, IRR, DSCR, LLCR, and other metrics, as well as quarterly and annual financial statements.
