This is your SolarWakeup for September 19th, 2014

We published the Vivint IPO numbers you need to know a few weeks ago. Today we have the number you WANT to know about the Vivint Solar IPO. With 129MW of solar through the first half of 2014, the IPO is trying to value VSLR at 1.9 BILLION dollars. That’s a whopping $14.70/watt of contracted solar. Of course that doesn’t take into account growth and upside, but you get the point. Blackstone also retains 75% of the company once public!

I asked, and you answered. While I appreciate the thoughts of concern about the hit rates, SolarWakeup continues to grow nicely but I think we are all ready to see a more global view on solar news. It also goes with what you told me in your feedback that an international view could help you locally and that is our goal, to make you more efficient.

A report has residential solar and storage growing to a massively large 625billion dollars in the next 10 years. With California clearly in the lead and Hawaii taking a strong look at storage, how will ALL homeowners have access to financing regardless of financial credit strength? At some point, someone needs to bridge the market we want with the market we need to get to 100% adoption, right?
