There are a lot of smart, hard-working people in our tumultuous industry. Through the latest round of challenges in solar, we’re excited to share a recent industry win:

kWh Analytics has now structured Solar Revenue Puts on over $500 million of solar assets, leveraging data analytics and financial innovation to successfully lower the cost of solar.

What that means:

  • Sponsors: Increase IRRs by 30+ bps. Notable sponsors include Coronal Energy, Ares EIF, and AES Distributed Energy.
  • Lenders: Help their clients to succeed in a competitive environment. Lending partners can be found on the Solar Lendscape.
  • Everyone: As reported in GTM, the mechanism will be “an important financial innovation” to continue lowering the cost of capital for utility-scale solar projects as power-purchase agreement prices continue to decline.

Next up: We’re hiring to bring this impact to scale. Our unique team of solar data scientists and financial innovators are inventing the next generation of financial tools to lower the cost of solar.

Below, you’ll find five new job postings and select highlights from this quarter. And as always, reach out with any questions on solar risk management.
