This is your SolarWakeup for July 31st, 2015

I like to think that the SolarWakeup community is pretty successful, I mean you all wake up each day and read the solar news and maybe even glance at my thoughts. My guess is that every reader either has or would like a Tesla. So let’s put the community to the test. One of our readers has been a Tesla Model S driver for a few years, yesterday he received the email from Elon Musk saying that if he gets 10 people to buy a Model S, and is the first one to do so, he gets a free Model X. You get $1000 off your model S, which isn’t too bad as the car keeps getting more affordable with each new edition. Here is the landing page for the referral, let’s win a Tesla for a SolarWakeup friend

This is your SolarWakeup for July 30th, 2015

A lot going on today that I want to tell you about. First, ever since the IPO of the SunPower/First Solar yieldco, the metric for solar IPPs has been CAFD (cash available for distribution). Yesterday, SolarCity went the non-GAAP route and released a memo on the topic. Second, look at large corporates to continue to be internally conflicted on solar and then trend to being pro-solar because it is good for business. Berkshire Hathaway is the biggest of them all, an owner of some of the worst utilities and coal transporting railroads it is also becoming one of the largest owners of solar asset owners including community solar.
