Innovative Solar Business Models Project

In support of the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative’s goal to enable large-scale deployment of solar energy technologies without subsidies, Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) received funding to partner with key electricity sector actors and investigate new solar business models that harmonize the interests of utilities, customers, and distributed resource providers.

By investigating business models that recognize and create value for multiple stakeholders, this project aims to considerably increase the potential size of the U.S. solar market, creating a positive feedback cycle of enabling scale and accelerating PV cost reductions.
