Colorado Clean Energy Fund is partnering with Saulsbury Hill Financial to provide Tax-Exempt Lease Purchase (TELP) financing to municipal entities and special districts to help finance clean energy equipment up to 100% of project costs. The TELP financing structure can incorporate direct payment from the IRS for qualifying clean energy projects using the new Section 6417 rules under the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

This financing structure allows borrowers to own their energy systems with no upfront costs and beneficial terms.
