San Diego, California-based residential solar company OneRoof Energy continues to wind down US operations, this time with a default under its head office lease.
If no compromise is reached, the company could be forced to vacate its headquarters in addition to its liability for unpaid rent which is currently in excess of US$160,000.
As of yet, OneRoof has not received any notice of default or acceleration from its secured lenders. But crucially, the company’s total liabilities under the secured loan facilities exceeds the value of its assets; meaning that an acceleration of the secured loans could result in the foreclosure the majority of, or all of, OneRoof’s assets.
In light of winding down operations, OneRoof has adjusted the employment agreements of two executive board members – David Field and Dalton Sprinkle.
Most recently, the company announced its plans to sell 19.8MW of its solar project assets in the aggregate. In July, OneRoof secured US$50 million construction loan facility to finance new solar projects.
Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
Now in its sixth successful year, Solar & Storage Finance USA is the only event which looks at raising capital for solar, storage and collocated solar and storage projects in the USA. The conference will help delegates understand how providers are evolving propositions for storage and how they can access capital for standalone solar or storage, and co-located projects. Meet debt providers, funders, utilities, corporate off takers and blue chip energy firms with capital to invest and developers with credible pipelines.
