Commitment to Action

Scaling Non-Residential Solar Deployment Using truSolar

Commitment by

Distributed Sun

In 2014, truSolar committed to launch a nonprofit 501c6 Accreditation Body and to publish and manage a Risk Screen Criteria & Methodology framework that will standardize solar asset screening, rating and underwriting by commercial solar technology installers. The standard will facilitate the reliable pricing of risk, lower the cost of capital and increase the availability of primary and secondary market funding for solar panels. As part of this commitment, truSolar will recruit 20 or more leading financial, renewable energy development and product/service vendor firms in non-residential solar, and ask them to take the truSolar Pledge in the summer of 2014. The truSolar Pledge is designed to facilitate the widespread adoption of the standardization framework.
