Services to Energy Investors Include:
Project Energy Modeling
We will build an independent energy model to objectively assess the likely output of your energy project. Our models take into account the specific technology and design factors of a given project. We go beyond manufacturer’s datasheets and marketing collateral. Instead, we draw from primary research of production and maintenance cycles seen by real-world users of the technology at issue.

Energy Valuation & Utility Pricing Analysis
The value of energy varies widely based on the utility, customer-type, and prevailing rate plan. Our team has developed utility-specific models for hundreds of rate plans. In building energy valuation models, we are experts in juggling the complexities of demand-based pricing, time-of-use, and energy consumption tiered rate plans.
Financial Modeling & Pro-forma Financial Development
We can deliver investment grade project finance models that include the standard financial statements, plus debt schedules, energy income schedules, O&M schedules, and tax equity and sponsor equity investors waterfalls. Our comprehensive set of models are in an integrated excel model whereby all values are dynamic and scalable to allow for adaptation to each type of investment scenario.
Deal Structuring Strategy & Due Diligence
A critical and integral piece of our financial services for renewable energy investors includes our understanding of the legal landscape. While you should always check with your own counsel, our legal team can advise you on the best structure for your deal: PPA, Lease, Service Agreement, Sale-Leaseback, Partnership Flip, or Inverted Lease. We can also provide the full set of documents and financial models needed to execute the deal.

Our team is happy to support in the underwriting of the project and the off-taker. This includes collecting the necessary financial data about the off-taker, the project, and the contractors. We also have a proprietary credit rating system that takes into account both the creditworthiness of the project, real estate and the financial stability of the off-taker.
Market Research & Data Analysis
Our team includes several bright, voracious, recent college graduates that are extremely adept at primary research and data synthesis. Our in-house graphic designer helps turn the research team’s findings into highly polished reports and presentations.

Our team can build a systematic outreach campaign to insure you learn of the best available projects that meet your criteria. HmU can also arrange development equity for projects. This is often the critical missing link between developers and investors and a linchpin of our financial services for renewable energy investors.
