Pioneering access to clean energy through financing
As the cost of solar power tumbles, California-based Mosaic explains how affordable financing has helped more people access clean energy than ever before.
California is well on its way to meet its 2030 renewable energy target of 50%: the state Energy Commission estimates that renewable energy facilities contributed 30% of retail electricity in 2017.
Much of this success is due to a combination of shifts in attitude, policy – and pioneering companies such as Oakland-based Mosaic. Formed in 2011, it is a “B2B2C” model that provides software and financing solutions for homeowners through solar contractors with the aim of making it easier for people to go solar while providing a financial incentive for doing so.
