Proposed Regulations Address REIT Investments in Solar Facilities
May 19, 2014
The Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Department of the Treasury recently issued proposed regulations that may help facilitate REIT investments in certain renewable energy projects. The proposed regulations create a new framework for determining whether a particular asset constitutes “real property” for REIT qualification purposes, and contain two examples that specifically address solar PV facilities and their separate components.
Although the proposed regulations represent a step in the right direction and an encouraging development, it is doubtful that they will create a groundswell of REIT investments in solar projects or in other renewable energy projects.
