TITLE:  Financing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Projects with Qualified Energy Conservation Bonds (QECBs)

IEPA#:5206

SUMMARY:  In 2009, Illinois counties and cities received a $134 million allocation of Qualified Energy Conservation Bonds (QECBs).  QECBs are taxable bonds issued by local governments in which the issuer receives a direct cash payment from the U.S. Treasury for a substantial portion of the interest cost on the borrowing.  For eligible projects, QECBs can provide water and wastewater utilities with very low interest rates (from 0% to 1.5% in the current market) for terms up to 22 years.   An estimated 105 projects totaling $637 million have been financed with QECBs across the country.  The webinar will discuss the types of energy efficiency and renewable projects that can be financed by QECBs and give examples of QECB projects in Illinois and elsewhere.  QECB financings will be explained, including the process of obtaining an allocation, issuing the bonds and determining the amount of the subsidy.

Daniel Kaplan, President of Kaplan Financial Consulting, Inc. has worked with local governments for the past 25 years on the planning and sale of bond issues for their infrastructure projects.   At Watercon 2011, Mr. Kaplan presented "How to Pay for the Treatment Plant Overall” which discussed the $150 million capital improvement program for the Springfield Metro Sanitary District.   

PRESENTER: Dan Kaplan, Kaplan Financial Consulting, Inc.
