This is your SolarWakeup for March 16th, 2017

Buy a ticket to Equinox. Vote Solar does great things and you should give them at least $100 per year. In return you get to go to Equinox, a great party, or just buy a ticket to support the group. Most importantly, I am on the host committee which means we compete to see who can drive the most traffic to ticket purchases. My proposal to you again. If you buy a ticket, email me the receipt and you will be recognized. If you buy 10 tickets or donate $1000, you get to write a paragraph in a future edition. If you want to donate more, email me and I’ll figure out a way to get you even more exposure. Ticket link here.

New York’s REV Dream. I haven’t read the REV rules as adopted so let’s crowdsource this. What are you excited about? What do you see as the first segment of the solar market most likely to get developed?

Carried by California. California is carrying the rest of the Country. The total installed capacity is nearly half of the Country’s total solar. NEM 2.0 is going to create a soft moment as re-education of consumers is taken on. We highlighted the softening numbers months ago, stay calm and solar on.

Irony Alert. Most people in solar were not confident that the ITC would get extended. Only a few were bad market participants and actively campaigned against the ITC. Noone did that more openly than Sunnova so imagine my surprise when I see their tax equity fund being raised. At the very least, Sunnova should say a public thank you to the people that got the ITC extended.


Have a great day!
