How to Obtain Cheap International Financing for 1 MW – 5 MW Solar Projects In India?

Most solar projects today face delays due to the financial closure and bankability of solar projects is a major issue that developers are facing today.

National banks like SBI and other banks are providing debt at interest rates around 13% to 14%, Higher cost of capital is making solar projects unviable as high interest rates combined with inferior terms in domestic financing is increasing the cost of solar projects by 24-30%

While big players who set up solar projects with 100s of MW capacity are able to obtain cheap international financing as they are able to leverage export credit finance options from international sources with low interest rates. It does not make financial sense for International funding sources to consider any projects with capacity less than 10MW as their cost of due diligence is high and appetite for risk is very low

Combined with low interest rates and advantages with economies of scale with larger projects, big players are able to outbid smaller developers in most recent reverse bidding process in both in Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Telangana

Small developers who are willing to setup solar plants(1MW to 3MW) are at a disadvantage as they are not able to compete with larger players, as it is almost impossible to obtain international financing for any project less than 5MW capacity
