Energy & Infrastructure

Bridge Bank’s Energy and Infrastructure Group ("EIG”) offers a full complement of debt financing, advisory, and banking services to developers of commercial and small-scale utility renewable energy generation facilities across the country. EIG assists clients in getting their projects ‘off the drawing board’ and on the path to installation and operations.

Flexible and Creative Solutions

We understand that, among developers, there is a wide range of risk tolerance and varying degrees of complexity when it comes to project financing. Each project is unique, and requires different contractual and financial structures. EIG crafts a creative, customized solution for each client, giving them access to hard-to-reach funding to help make their development plans a reality. We understand your projects are time-sensitive, which is why many of our clients receive financing terms in as little as two weeks, with subsequent funding usually within two months.

Our Network of Resources and Partners

EIG leverages Bridge Bank’s nationally rooted Technology Banking Division to offer unique, business-oriented answers to your structured financing needs. We take pride in facilitating introductions to resources for every aspect of a project, ranging from equity to procurement and from development to legal services, for which our team has partnerships at the local and national levels.

Ecoplexus Inc. Case Study
“First and foremost, Bridge Bank understood solar and solar project finance. They were comfortable with all aspects of it. They were also comfortable with multi-family affordable housing and, in particular, the way the projects were funded from both an incentive and a tax perspective. They brought those areas of expertise to the table and were able to respond very quickly in helping us to structure a program that would work.”  ~Erik Stuebe, Ecoplexus
