Global Project Finance > Tax Equity Telegraph > MLPs, REITs and YieldCos Poster from WindPower
08 May '14

Here’s the link to the poster that I presented at WindPower on master limited partnerships (MLPs), real estate investment trusts (REITs) and YieldCos.

The poster explains (i) the limited extent to which MLPs and REITs, each of which have a tax-advantaged status, can invest in wind projects under current tax law, (ii) how proposed changes in tax law if enacted would permit MLPs to expand their ability to invest in wind projects and (iii) how the yieldco vehicle, which is a publicly traded C-corporation without any special tax status, is being used for wind projects in lieu of MLP vehicles.
