Jeff Snowden and his team at Capex Consulting have been a tremendous asset for Rio Grande Valley Sugar Growers for nearly 15 years! Capex has provided economic analysis for a variety of purposes; from assisting with insurance claims and renewable energy grants, to marketing our renewable energy credits, Jeff is only a phone call away.

I've had the opportunity to work alongside Jeff Snowden and Capex Consulting for over 15 years. Capex Consulting has served our mutual clients in preparing comprehensive technical feasibility studies. Jeff is extremely competent in preparing complex models and summarizing results in a way that is easy to understand. Jeff has the capability, capacity, and passion required to meet his client’s needs. He takes his work seriously but does not take himself too seriously. He is easy to work with and completes deliverables on time. You really can’t ask more from your rate consultant! I am looking forward to many more years of working alongside Jeff and Capex Consulting.

"Bell County was not prepared to deal with the tax abatement process regarding renewable energy projects. CAPEX and Jeff Snowden provided the expertise to determine fair valuations to implement a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) abatement program and expected tax revenue to the county. Since our first project Mr. Snowden has been an integral part of the Commissioners Court team in the evaluation of the several additional projects that have come to the county requesting tax abatements."

Bill Schumann
Bell County Commissioner

"When I left after 8 years as Delta County Judge, we had lower taxes/lowered the tax rate, and had paid-off almost all debt due in part to following Jeff's advice. I used Jeff to develop our annual budgets and negotiate abatement agreements, and we ended up better off and made better deals than surrounding counties with similar projects because we followed Jeff’s advice. He made us money so the money we spent to hire Capex was well worth it."

"For over 20 years, up to the time of my retirement, I have relied on the knowledge and experience of Jeff Snowden to complete various grant, abatement, and other projects of the county of La Salle. The work he provides is precise and timely, from inception to completion with no doubts of his skill and ability."

"Jeff is one of the brightest and most well-connected men in Texas. I run all my big ideas past him, and I include him in all my important negotiations."

"Jeff is always looking out for the best interest of his clients and the taxpayer, specifically public sector municipalities or counties, in providing valuable guidance and implementing Chapter 312 abatement agreements for large capital projects."

"In my position as Fannin County, Texas Judge last year, Mr. Jeff Snowden saved our county literally thousands of dollars negotiating a battery storage facility contract for us. We had many conversations with the company to acquire a “good” contract. When I was ready to settle, Jeff said to hold my position and I did. His leadership saved us thousands. He is trustworthy…does what he says and is simply helpful. I hope this information will make you successful in your endeavors."

Former Fannin County Judge

"Tom Green County was approached in 2018 with a tax abatement request for a large solar project. Our prior experience was 2009 concerning a small wind farm that did not perform as presented. We realized professional help was needed to best represent our taxpayers. Jeff Snowden and Capex Consulting was referred to us from outside the county family. He created our abatement policies, guidelines, and reinvestment zone for this project. We negotiated a fresh approach with his guidance that contracted a fixed income schedule for ten years, instead of the then current practice of large percentage abatements based on valuations. We are now negotiating our ninth project including a large personal property tax rebate agreement. Mr. Snowden's informed thorough professionalism has been invaluable to us in our efforts to create opportunity with large corporate organizations, currently over a billion dollars in valuations. We continue our relationship with Capex as his professional responsibility remains for the best interests of our citizens."

Steve Floyd
Tom Green County Judge

"Delta County has worked with Capex Consulting and Jeff Snowden on several economic development projects, including abatement negotiations and finance consulting. Jeff has done a phenomenal job representing Delta County in these projects and advocating on our behalf. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable with renewable energy proposals, Chapter 312 terms and conditions, and related projects."

"Capex offers what governmental entities need. Governmental entities need more than just a numbers person, we need somebody with banking experience in the private sector, banking experience in the public sector like the NAD Bank (North American Development Bank), experience in negotiating with governmental agencies, but more important Capex offers a level of total commitment to their clients, and they are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and truly become a member of your team."

"Capex will not just present you a document and leave. They will meet with your local governmental entities, work with your financial advisors, with federal and state agencies such as EPA, NAD Bank, Texas Water Development Board, BECC (Border Environment Cooperation Commission) and whoever else you need to meet with. Capex, through Jeff [Snowden], makes you feel as if he has partnered until your mission is accomplished, this is the difference between Capex and other consultant firms."

"Over the years we have come to rely on Jeff Snowden and the Capex team on a number of projects. Most recently Rio Grande Valley Sugar Growers were awarded a $10.2 million federal renewable energy grant. The grant was critical in solidifying our balance sheet during a particularly tough economic period while at the same time helping to retain jobs for our employees and sustain the economic viability of our community. Jeff and his team stepped in and identified the opportunity, analyzed the grant requirements and assured that a very complicated application process was brought to fruition. The expertise and experience that Jeff offered was critical in assuring the multi-month application process was completed in a timely and accurate manner in order to comply with demanding federal guidelines. In no small measure to Jeff's work these federal funds allowed us to keep our doors open and keep the business operating."

"Ultimately the people who we work with are those able to meet our objectives and Capex has always exceeded my expectations. I will work with Capex because I know they will get the job done."

"Rarely, if ever, do you find an individual and firm with the complete package. Jeff [Snowden] and the Capex Consulting Group are the complete package. Whether it is a back of the envelope feasibility analysis or a detailed economic study in support of multi-million dollar projects, Jeff has delivered for me each and every time over the past 12 years I have known him - from the one million dollar project to several tens of millions of dollars in funding. My project successes are due in no small part to the work of Jeff Snowden and Capex and my clients love them."
