Lawyers and investors making solar happen – on all those big roofs you see from airplanes
September 8, 2014
The patchwork of regulation, tax incentives, utility transactions and insurance issues around commercial scale solar can be daunting. That's why a group of attorneys, Cleantech Law Partners, and financiers (through such companies as Sustainable Capital Finance), both in California, are involved in the industry. It may be complicated, but the rapid growth of renewable energy in the U.S. has some good economics going for it. And as one source in this story told me, the potential is easily seen from an airplane window: all those big empty roofs could be generating electricity that's both clean and profitable. In fact there's so much money to be made over time that investors are patient enough to wait out the three to five years needed to achieve their ROI.
