How new financing models could make solar the Facebook of the energy industry
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Rapidly dropping polysilicon prices over the past year have inspired several utility-scale solar developments to move forward after many months' pause. At the same time, those in favor of distributed generation (placing solar on every available rooftop to supply energy locally) have also made strides in improving the business case for small-scale solar, particularly with respect to what is being called "community solar" — centrally located solar projects that enable those who can't necessarily put solar on their own roofs to support and benefit from solar energy.
