This is your SolarWakeup for October 20th, 2014

The Las Vegas migration has begun. Surely the majority of you are heading to Las Vegas for our annual gathering at Solar Power International. Few notes this year. It’s in Vegas, so pace yourself. Don’t have too much solar fun the first day/night. Second, the hashtag is #SPIcon for your Facebook and twitter feeds. Third, if you see me, say hi. I always enjoy meeting readers in person. See you in Vegas!

As you all know, we have more fun in Florida. Even the debate for the Governor’s office had some fun over a fan. It gets hot in Florida, it’s the Sunshine State, and Charlie Crist loves his fan, always has and always will. If you wonder if Florida will have a future solar industry, it comes down to Charlie Crist winning. They even spoke about solar, take a look!

Yesterday was an interesting day in the market. The day started with a drop in 10 year bond yields to under 2% and the market reacted drastically. This means that you can get a 30 year mortgage for under 4% fixed interest which would be enticing for solar developers and probably expand more markets. At the same time, SolarCity released their crowd funding program, marketing their loans for between 2%-4%, that’s mass market if they can get it!
