Musk Solar Strategy Used as Model for Record Investments: Energy

Private equity and venture capital firms are pouring record investments into rooftop solar, following a model popularized by billionaire Elon Musk's SolarCity Corp. -- sell power, not panels. They're on pace to supply $5 billion this year for residential and commercial solar projects, up from $3.3 billion in 2013, according to the researcher Mercom Capital Group LLC. The funds are going to companies such as Sungevity Inc. and Sunrun Inc. that sell electricity, a shift from the last boom year of 2008 when venture capital and private equity investors provided $4.97 billion, mostly for solar-panel factories.

For years Washington has subsidized rooftop solar installations for customers in the form of the Solar Investment Tax Credit, which allows homeowners who install rooftop solar panels to receive a tax credit of up to 30 percent of the cost.
