This is your SolarWakeup for May 5th, 2016

Solar in Latin America is largely highlighted by three Countries: Chile, Mexico and Brazil. Brazil and Mexico have used the auction mechanism to get price discovery, each receiving multiple times over the amount of projects the auction was open for. However, market dynamics have caused Brazil projects to be slow to take off and Mexico is yet to be seen. Mexico originally went with a remote PPA approach and has had limited capacity built on that before the program was sunset. If you are working on Mexico or Brazil, give me a shout. I want to learn more from you.

This is your SolarWakeup for May 4th, 2016

1 million solar installs! That’s a big deal but what is really the big deal is that the next million will happen in less than 2 years. Dubai is signing PPAs for sub $0.03/kWh and storage prices are dropping like silicon in 2010. Here’s the kicker, States like Florida contributed less than 1% of those solar projects while being one of the largest energy users in the Country. We have a long, long way to go and I really enjoy going through this growth with everyone of you. Take a moment, pat yourself on the back and go sell another project!
