The residential solar financing model, in which consumers pay a monthly fee and little money up front, gets a capital boost from US Bancorp.
It's no longer just the greenies who invest in solar. People are attracted by stable electricity prices they get by financing solar panel installations, says SunRun.
Will creative financing bring solar to the masses? SunRun gets $18 million to pursue a model in which consumers pay a monthly fee for solar panels instead of a huge up-front cost.
In a bad economic environment, start-up SunRun gets $105 million commitment from U.S. Bank to bankroll another 2,000 solar installations paid through leases.
Start-up, which helps finance residential solar installation, says decreasing the cost is key in spreading solar power beyond the niche audience of "deep green" homeowners.
Utility PG&E creates fund to let SunRun offer financing for installation of rooftop photovoltaic panels, a model that cuts the hefty upfront cost.
