SunEdison, a subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials, has won a three-year, $50m construction loan from Rabobank International to build solar power plants in the US.


The funding will be used by SunEdison to finance construction of PV power plants at client (host) locations, allowing solar hosts to buy the energy produced at prices at or below retail rates upon project completion, avoiding upfront costs associated with solar installation.

The $50m construction revolver is expected to expand over the life of the deal for US projects ranging in size from small commercial to utility scale with the addition of more lenders, thereby enhancing SunEdison's ability to execute on its pipeline of solar projects.

SunEdison vice president of project finance and corporate development William Lee said that with close to 250MW of solar deployed worldwide, SunEdison has the experience and know-how that project investors and customers trust.

"SunEdison looks forward to working with Rabobank as we continue to make solar a reality for our customers across the nation," Lee said.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
