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.
