Companies with federal tax liability can use solar tax equity – a federally incentivized investment – to lower their effective tax rate while helping to reduce greenhouse emissions and improve environmental health. As a leading tax equity investor, Nelnet has over $278 million of tax equity under management between us and our co-investment partners to date. Other companies can co-invest their federal tax liability with ours to help drive a renewable energy future using our unique co-investment platform – and benefit from our proven asset management capabilities, solar tax equity expertise, and commitment to customer experience.

When an investment makes smart financial sense, is socially good, and follows a seamless process, it’s the best of all worlds. Discover the benefits of tax equity co-investing.

Short Duration and Early Breakeven
