The solar industry is booming, with installed capacity growing by about 50% annually between 2015 and 2018. Yet inefficient and costly project financing inhibits many solar developers from tapping into the market’s true potential. With changes to the investment tax credit (ITC) looming, there is an opportunity to address some of the long-term financing challenges that have confronted the industry for many years. New debt financing vehicles, with terms that match the full operational life of solar projects, will support continued industry growth and will give developers of all sizes the opportunity to build a thriving business.
