Investment in power generating facilities and/or operations, vary in scope and potential with each project and the investors ROI/ROE considerations. Power generators offer a variety of revenue options; mid-term equity position in a build to lease/sell with a margin buyout, or mid-term options of 5-7 years with negotiated buyouts. Long-term PPAs of 15-25 years associated with those facilities where available, can offer long term stable guaranteed profits. Equity positions on build to own projects offer long term revenue streams with cash out at sale/end of life. Due to the unique nature of each power generation project, all positions are negotiable, there is no standard template used to determine a particular investor’s ROI or ROE potential.
