What Solar Investors Want (Infographic)

February 11th, 2014 by  


Sara Rafalson of Sol Systems recently sent along an infographic on “What Solar Investors Want” that her company put together. This isn’t just another flimsy infographic, though. The data came from “a year of our Project Finance Journals, which we distribute on the 15th of every month to approximately 2700 industry professionals,” Sara noted. She also commented on why there was even a need for such an infographic:

The shortage of project finance is a limitation to the non-residential, commercial and industrial (C&I) sector of the solar market. Especially compared with other sectors of the market, C&I distributed generation solar is plagued with high transaction costs and a lack of standardization. Though there is no shortage of solar investors trying to break into the promising solar asset class, there is a true shortage of financeable, quality project pipeline. This lack of financeable deal flow is stifling the market and limiting the growth potential of the U.S. solar industry.

So, with that background out of the way, let’s start offering investors more financeable solar projects! Here’s how:
