Welcome to Solar Project Development

Welcome....this is the first post in our new series on Solar Project Development. We intend to create the web's premier site for content, education and news related to solar project development.

There are a lot of sites that focus on renewable energy, there are plenty that focus on solar but our site is focused on one thing: getting solar projects done. Who is doing them successfully? How are they doing them? What are new tools and processes? What are the legal issues to contend with.

Industry estimates show that somewhere between 75% and 95% of solar projects that get started are never finished. That's not even a good batting average in baseball. There is a lot of time and money being spent by developers, equipment manufacturers, installers and investors looking at projects that are never going to get done. As an industry we can, and must, do better.

 We intend to focus on a broad range of topics from very basic introductory material to the most pressing and complex issues in solar project development.

We hope you will join us often. If you are interested in contributing content, telling us about a project or having us interview you for our "Expert" series please reach out to us.

Thanks,

Eric
