Our Policy Is to Know Policy

On any government project, every decision must be informed by a deep understanding of the latest policies and regulations. That’s especially true with solar. Rules and rebates are constantly changing and can have an immediate impact on any financing decision.

The U.S. Navy wanted to build a solar power system at the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station. After working closely with policy experts at SunPower, the Navy was able to craft the first 20-year Federal PPA, reducing costs by an estimated $13 million over the next 20 years.
