At our team’s annual retreat in Santa Cruz, we had the chance to reflect on our past year. We also had fun coming up with some ‘solar carols’ :)

Below are some highlights we’re excited to share from this past quarter. And Happy Holidays, from our team to yours.

Founder & CEO

As reported in Bloomberg, kWh Analytics has now structured Solar Revenue Puts on over $250 million of solar assets, both improving the economics of solar and establishing a new insurtech category.

With the Solar Revenue Put, industry-leading sponsors and banks are able to reduce the risk—and therefore the cost—of solar. To learn more about how the Solar Revenue Put can enhance your next project financing, please reach out and we’ll set up an introductory call.

kWh Analytics has won a $1.25 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) to utilize its real-world data to quantify degradation rates and increase the affordability and reliability of solar.
As reported in pv Magazine, kWh Analytics has launched its Solar Lendscape for Tax Equity – a free resource that profiles 28 tax equity investors.

For developers looking to raise capital, the Solar Lendscape catalogs the industry’s most active debt and tax equity investors, including details on check size, target market segments, and product type.

In case you missed it, here are the latest #Solar100 interviews: Ray Shem: Solar’s Cassandra, Lidija Sekaric: Solar’s Jack of All Trades, Highlights from the #Solar100 at SPI 2018, Anne Hoskins: The Adam Smith of Solar Policy, and Bryan Birsic: The Tony Stark of C&I Solar.

kWh Analytics Wins 2018 Finance Innovation Award

kWh Analytics was awarded the 2018 Finance Innovation Award at the Global Climate Action Summit for its invention of the Solar Revenue Put, a credit enhancement that de-risks the performance of solar power plants, enables investors to deploy more capital into solar assets, and reduces the cost of solar.
