Much time is spent talking about solar project finance. Not least of all by us: here, here, and here. There are a number of reasons for this: solar projects involve large dollar amounts, they are more commonly financed than efficiency projects, and they are highly visible. They are, however, generally less profitable investments than energy efficiency projects. Which leads to a reasonable question: why don’t more people implement energy efficiency projects?
Reasonable, but mysterious.
