hi i have almost finished this model but there is one place that i dont quite understand - G101, when you calculate the principal amount if 85% Capex caps the Debt raised, why are we using the ratio of that / min of P50 or P99? Would be great if you could answer me! thanks, Rita
Gurdeep Singh Jassal
I found this financial modeling course to be both fun and unique. I have not been familiar with the construct of solar energy financial modeling and after completing it there were sufficient learning experiences. Understanding the development timeline of a solar project was straight forward. It was also a helpful refresher to practice advanced financial modeling. Thank you CFI and Antoine for putting this together in the program.
