Boulder, Colo – The Solar Finance Council (SFC), an industry working group designed to improve access to low-cost capital and reduce transaction costs, has launched a new SFC Investor Portal to facilitate knowledge sharing in the solar investment space. The new resource will be a “one stop shop” to help investors and other stakeholders navigate the wide range of publicly available finance information for solar energy investments in the United States.
“There are still many friction points to investing in solar energy projects and companies, including fragmented silos of information,” said Mike Mendelsohn, the Solar Finance Council’s executive director. “The SFC Investor Portal is designed to reduce the perception of risk and uncertainty around these solid financial assets.”
The Investor Portal combines rating agency reviews of debt and securitization offerings, relevant industry reports, articles, and websites, as well as standardization and best practice documents in one organized repository. It will be frequently updated with new information and functionality.
“We are open to feedback and suggestions on how to continually improve this publicly available industry resource. Our hope is that it will be a first step in meeting the SFC’s mission of lower cost capital and reduced transaction costs for solar energy projects,” Mendelsohn added.
