Stanley Fishbein, Managing Partner at CleanView Capital recently participated in a webinar entitled Ameren Illinois Microgrid & The Leasing Solution. The webinar was hosted by the Edison Electric Institute.
Rod Hilburn, Manager, Ameren Illinois’ Technology Application Center, first explained why and how Ameren Illinois, one of the largest electric utilities in Illinois, created what has been described by David Chiesa, Senior Director, Global Business Development at S&C Electric as “the most advanced utility-scale microgrid in North America.”
Mr. Fishbein then explained the characteristics of a “traditional” operating lease and how it was structured and used by Ameren Illinois, a deregulated utility that does not own generation, to obtain use of the generation component of this microgrid in a cost-effective manner.
