This location is chosen by it’s mild temperatures all year long not getting too cold nor too hot. San Francisco’s weather ranges from 46 to 75 degrees. According to Wikipedia San Francisco only exceeds 75 degrees slightly from May to October. San Francisco has plenty of beaches from the Pacific Ocean. During the summer is warm but breezy from the winds off the Pacific and during the winter it does not snow.

This environment climate is ideal for benefits towards the community and residence of the complex. Climate will play a role in how the building is constructed and steps taken for energy conservation. The use of natural resources will assist in many ways such the winds off the Pacific to help cool residences off in the evening and reducing the heat palate. There will be a windmill design on the property to use natural winds from the Pacific to power the complex reducing the energy usages especially during the summer. The fact San Francisco does not have extremely harsh winters leaves open possibilities for residences to plant and grow their own food on the property using natural resources, which in return will help the environment along with feeding residences and wildlife.

Budgeting at Aes

...AES to sell a fourth such company, Central Indiana Light and Power (CILCORP), when AES purchased IPALCO, a sale that was completed near the end of 2002. Growth distribution Growth Distribution businesses offered AES significant potential growth due to their location in developing markets where the demand for electricity was expected to grow at considerably faster rates than in developed countries. However, these businesses also faced notable risks related to operating difficulties, less stable governments, and regulatory regimes, and differing cultural norms regarding basic principles such as payment conventions and safety regulations. Two new Growth Distribution businesses in Ukraine (Kievoblenergo and Rivoblenergo) and one in Cameroon (SONEL) were acquired as recently as 2001. 3 The description for these lines of businesses comes largely from AES’s annual reports; see AES Corporation, 2001 Annual Report (Arlington: AES Corporation, 2002) and AES Corporation, 2002 Annual Report (Arlington: AES Corporation, 2003). 4 Energy companies typically refer to generation companies not as members of a “portfolio” but members of a “fleet.” 3 204-109 Globalizing the Cost of Capital and Capital Budgeting at AES Recent Difficulties AES’s placement in foreign markets as well as poor performance at several new U.S. businesses nearly crippled the company during the global economic slowdown that began in 2001.

Private Firm's Incentive to Invest in Africa This helped in avoiding a risk premium being added to the contract and was transferred to the rate payers. This is called ‘regulation by contract’ and increased private investor’s interest in the region. Capacity The government has to be able to take decisions quickly and transparently, due to lack of experience this maybe challenging but can be sought from experts. The developing economies don’t usually have the money to pay for these consulting services but the funds can be asked for from the multilateral institutions. Weak Regulatory and Legal Framework It is common across many countries to call for tenders that attract only a few and in many cases only one bid. This is evident from the Cameroon case where the public utility, Sonel, just attracted one bid; this maybe the situation since in many cases the tenders get cancelled or postponed causing the private investors to lose money. Many times the government also put restrictions or rules on the hiring process of the private investors. Some countries subsidize certain industries at the expense of the investor and since some have entered in a fixed bid contract they end up suffering losses. A lot of PPP’s also fail because of weak public institutions which maybe a cause of lack of skills of the public officials, bloated government structures – multiple government bodies dealing with one issue and lack of coordination among them and lack of political will i.e. lack of enthusiasm for political reforms8.
