HelioStats 3.0 & ‘Best Practices for Solar Risk Management’ Released Today

solar risk management (sō-lər \ risk \ ma-nij-mənt ) noun 1. The practice of managing and measuring risk within a solar investment portfolio; a term of art directed at financial investors with exposure to operating solar projects in the form of structured investment vehicles, and in particular investors providing various forms of debt, tax equity, or cash equity.


Two big updates on the next era of solar risk management:

1) Today SEIA and kWh Analytics released ‘Best Practices for Solar Risk Management.’

In collaboration with SEIA and the US Department of Energy’s Orange Button program, we are proud to publish the first definitive guide to help solar financiers successfully navigate investment, compliance, and risk management.

“This guide will serve as a valuable tool to both experienced investors looking to grow their businesses, as well as newer investors unsure of how to review the relevant risk factors,” said Mike Mendelsohn, SEIA’s Senior Director of Project Finance and Capital Markets.

With over 10GW and 100,000 systems under management, more than five years of experience building the industry’s leading risk management tools, and the privilege of working with top solar investors, here’s what we’ve learned: Download the report.
