The biogas industry needs lending partners that understand how to navigate the challenges of being an innovator in renewable natural gas, as well as how to structure attractive financing options for leading-edge technologies. But the industry struggles to secure affordable capital as a result of financial institutions shying away from the complexities of new technologies that support sustainable growth for this sector.
Through our national USDA lending platform, the Renewable Energy Lending team at West Town Bank & Trust provides expertise in solar, wind and other waste-to-energy verticals.
- Industry-Focused Expertise: Dedicated in-house experts in financing anaerobic digester systems for feedstock operations, municipal landfills and wastewater treatment plants.
- Experienced USDA Lending Teams: Since 2016, West Town Bank & Trust has originated more than $500 million in USDA loans through the Business & Industry (B&I) and Rural Energy for America (REAP) government-backed loan programs.
- National Lending Reach: Since 2012, West Town Bank & Trust has closed and funded over 500 government guaranteed loans for projects in more than 40 states (including D.C. and Guam).
“We are grateful to have worked with West Town Bank in securing USDA and construction financing for the landfill gas to RNG project in which our fund invested. The West Town Bank team remained focused, patient, and facilitated creative solutions throughout the entire process.”
