NorCal Solar 2014 Speaker Series, November 18 - "Rays of Solar Finance"

  • SunPower Corp 1414 Harbour Way S Richmond, CA, 94804 United States (map)

There is tremendous innovation and change happening in solar finance. GreenTech Media says residential third-party ownership looks to be flattening, with a swing back to homeowners actually owning the solar system but without having the burden of the high upfront cost. The Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program is alive and well. And much more! Let our experts bring you up to date with what's happening with Solar Financing!
