Brazil is having a second big event this week after a presidential election. Tomorrow Brazil hosts its first solar only auction and is expected to add more than 500mw of capacity. It will be intriguing to see at what price the solar energy is successful at achieving. At the end of the day it means another major market that becomes a little bit more familiar with solar in this case a country with over 200 million residents. Best of luck to the bidders and congrats to Brazil on an exciting day.

China is moving in on Russian solar while at the same time Sunedison’s Terraform is going shopping. Not part of the rundown but in separate news sources, TERP financed and acquired new projects from other funds. The entry to solar in used to be “We want to own and hold” but holding solar assets has become so competitive that owning may have become the new solar commodity.

Love it or hate it, the SolarCity story is a great example of American business success. Great idea, lots of barriers, hurdles and pain helped by visionaries and forward thinking investors. Fast forward less than 10 years and the ideas have burgeoned into the residential solar industry we have today with multiple Billion dollar companies. I didn’t see it then but I am happy that residential solar entrepreneurs are getting the publicity now.
