Developer Gains Forward Economic View of Solar PV at the Zip Code Level

 
 

Client Situation:

A large foreign renewable developer sought to enter the US market for C&I customer-sited solar PV development, they needed to prioritize marketing and customer outreach efforts. This developer had constructed a supply chain comprised of internal and external sourced equipment and combined it with a proprietary construction method.  While this provided the client with a powerful window into current and future costs of installed solar PV, they had a very limited view of the other drivers of economics in the US.
