This is your SolarWakeup for June 11th, 2013
Mercatus announced their raise of $2million yesterday to begin their credit scoring of solar projects. This seems somewhat similar to the goals of TruSolar and hopefully it will be a synergistic benefit to the solar industry. As a big fan of anything that helps create uniformity, I still believe that credit scores also need a credit enhancement tool such as PACE to get the scores high enough for lower return capital.
