Smart Energy Decisions, Amy Poszywak | September , 2017
It is an exciting time to be involved in solar! Given our exposure to both solar development and installation, we are often asked about broad trends we see in the industry. A new year offers a great opportunity to reflect on
The New York-based renewable energy company met with success speaking to developers, manufactures, and investors during the four-day event.
Rochester, N.Y. – September 25, 2015: Rochester-based Sunvestment Energy Group (SEG) reports a successful showing at one of the nation’s pre-eminent solar conferences, Solar Power International (SPI), held September 14-17 in Anaheim, California.
“We had substantive conversations with a number of developers and financiers, from small installers to very large, national companies with global name recognition,” says SEG President Jim Kurtz. “Across this spectrum we found support for our mission and an interest in our approach. Our online portal, standardized documents, and community funding strategy are designed to open up solar development in markets long isolated from more mainstream funding.”

Financial due diligence is critical early in the relationship between a solar developer and a prospective solar client. Without it, there may never be a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship.
Rochester, N.Y. -- Sunvestment Group (SVG) will continue its efforts to ease the complexities of solar financing through its innovative online platform, as a result of new support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
Through this partnership, Sunvestment will launch Phase II of its powerful online suite of tools and services. This web-based platform will bring all stakeholders—solar customers, investors and contractors — together in one place to conduct transactions.
Realizing that many mid-market solar projects (those in the 100 kW to 1 MW size range) never see the light of day as a result of the complexities surrounding financing, permitting, and incentive limitations, Sunvestment's efforts will focus on streamlining and standardizing contracts and agreements.
Part One of Two
You’re a solar developer home from the second meeting with the prospect (and soon-to-be client, you hope), and you’re feeling pretty jazzed. He looked at solar a couple of years ago, so that long sweep of a learning curve has been shortened to a quick chicane thanks to the efforts of the solar contractor who met with him previously.
