Government/Non-Profit

Governments, municipalities, school districts and other not for profit entities are experiencing severe budgetary constraints while dealing with rising energy costs.  Implementation of cost saving measures such as energy efficiency and renewable energy can make a positive impact on operating costs yet the ability of these organizations to spend capital is often limited.  Gemstone specializes in advising governmental and non-profit clients on the economic impact of energy efficiency and  and renewables.  This analysis can then be used to identify financing alternatives that fit the needs of the client.

Gemstone clients can use many options including power purchase agreements, energy service contracts, leases, certificates of participation and shared energy savings contracts.

Gemstone maintains relationships with capital sources that specialize in this industry sector allowing for “subject to appropriations” funding with standardized documentation and flexibile payment schedules.
