KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to GoodGreen 2019-2

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns a preliminary rating to three classes of notes from GoodGreen 2019-2 (“GoodGreen 2019-2”). The notes are newly issued asset-backed securities backed by a portfolio of Property Assessed Clean Energy (“PACE”) assessments.

The Class A, Class B and Class C Notes are secured by a portfolio of PACE assets in California (“California PACE Assets”), issued by the Golden State Finance Authority (“GSFA”) and the County of Yolo (“County of Yolo” and together with GSFA, the “California Local Agencies”), PACE assets in Florida (“Florida PACE Assets”), which are limited obligation bonds issued by the Green Corridor Property Assessment Clean Energy District (“Florida PACE District”), and PACE assets in Missouri (“Missouri PACE Assets” and together with the California PACE Assets and Florida PACE Assets, the “PACE Assets”), which are issued by the Clean Energy Development Board of The City of St. Louis, Missouri (“St. Louis City District”) and The St. Louis County Clean Energy Development Board (“St. Louis County District” and together with St. Louis City District, the “Missouri Districts” and, collectively with the California Local Agencies and the Florida PACE District, the “PACE Asset Issuers”). The portfolio of PACE Assets consists of limited obligation improvement assessments. The portfolio of initial PACE Assets (“Initial PACE Assets”), to be acquired by the Issuer on the Closing Date, comprises 8,502 PACE Assessments issued by the PACE Asset Issuers on 7,912 residential and commercial properties located in 38 California, 23 Florida counties and two Missouri counties. The aggregate principal balance of the Initial PACE Assets is approximately $209.7 million. The average PACE Assessment is approximately $24,665 with an average annual payment of approximately $2,465. The PACE Assets purchased by the Depositor and transferred to the Issuer during the Prefunding Period (“Subsequent PACE Assets”) will, together with the Initial PACE Assets, constitute the PACE Asset Portfolio (“PACE Asset Portfolio”). The anticipated principal balance of the Subsequent PACE Assets is approximately $70.3 million. The transaction benefits from credit enhancement in the form of excess spread, a liquidity reserve, and an interest reserve.

KBRA has analyzed this transaction using the U.S. Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) ABS Rating Methodology published on June 1, 2018 and Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology published on August 8, 2018. The key determinants considered in the rating outcome are: a structural and legal analysis of the transaction; the treatment of PACE assessments as special assessments having lien priority on par with senior tax liens; and the creditworthiness of the counties acting as servicers.

KBRA believes the transaction benefits from sufficient credit enhancement and a structure that accelerates principal payments to the rated Notes upon weakening asset performance. In addition, KBRA views the eligibility requirements, especially the low LTV of the PACE assessment, as a positive credit consideration for this transaction.
