Choosing the best photovoltaic financing

FAQ

Project financing is calculated, collateralised and given for a specific project. This means that the photovoltaic system and its yields serve as a collateral and the applicant does not have to provide any further collateral. The terms and conditions are based not on personal creditworthiness, but rather on the expected returns on an investment.
The bank will always require the entry of a principal easement in the land register, provided that the land owner is not a public entity. In case of a foreclosure of the property, this allows the lender to be the first to be served from the market.
The borrower transfers the rights to the feed-in remuneration from the respective energy supply company to the lender so that the lender can continue to manage the loan in the event of the borrower's withdrawal.
When you puchase a photovoltaic system, you can either acquire it as your own property (asset deal) or you can purchase a company (share deal) that owns a photovoltaic system. Depending on the type of the deal, lending institutions will adapt the suitable contractural structure of the loan.
No. Photovoltaic plant serves as a collateral. In this case, the owner must assign the rights to the FiT remuneration and, if necessary, register a principal easement in the land register.
Yes. Equity capital is always required. The required sum varies greatly and always depends on the photovoltaic plant in question.
According to the leverage effect, the return on equity can be increased under certain conditions if part of the investment is financed by debt. To achieve this, the interest rate on borrowed capital must be lower than the return on total investment, which should be the case for photovoltaic systems that can be financed. As a result, in terms of return on equity it is always worth to use as much external capital as possible.
Yes, our partner banks offer fixed interest rates. Those pay off in the current low-interest phase and can be extended or reduced on request.
