Energetic Capital Issues Bindable Quote for its Largest Ever Utility Scale Transaction

The transaction marks an important evolution of how credit insurance can be used to enhance credit for large renewable energy projects. 




Boston, MA – April 8, 2024 – Energetic Capital (“Energetic”) announced its first ever binder for a credit insurance policy that will cover offtaker payment risk in a utility scale transaction. EneRate Credit Cover, a proprietary credit insurance policy offered by Energetic Capital, is an established solution for C&I developers seeking to make their projects more bankable. Application in a utility scale transaction is an important evolution that demonstrates the flexibility of Energetic’s underwriting capabilities. EneRate Credit Cover employs a novel risk-based pricing model that leverages proprietary market forecasting.  


This transaction also signals an important market shift. Historically, credit enhancement has not been required for large utility scale projects with large, regulated utilities as offtaker. Rising load requirements and ESG initiatives are causing more corporates and their suppliers to enter into bilateral agreements with generators, introducing counterparty credit challenges that were not relevant for utility scale transactions.Virtual and offsite PPAs are making renewable energy more accessible, but many investors are unwilling to lend to projects that rely on sub-investment grade or unrated offtake.  


“Renewable energy procurement is no longer limited to companies engaging in principled investment strategies. It now forms a cornerstone of the energy supply for large consumers. We are excited to be able to help facilitate this shift into a wider market The benefits of distributed energy resources should be more widely distributed. We are excited to expand  our thesis into large scale projects and enable more buyers to access clean energy.” said Jeff McAulay, CEO at Energetic. 


 The transaction is an important milestone for Energetic and for the industry as a whole as the industry moves meet clean energy targets and combat climate change. To learn more about Energetic’s products reach out!
