Crowd Funding: An Alternative Approach to Financing Wind and Solar Projects
Wednesday, February 11, 2015
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (EST)
Please register - RSVP
Financing renewable energy projects traditionally has entailed receiving funds from investors who are not always members of the local community, or who are local but only can afford to invest small sums in the project. Enter the new age of crowd funding. Using a crowd funding approach, community wind and solar projects have been funded with capital from a combination of local residents and more traditional mainstream investors utilizing "intrastate" securities offerings. Our experts will share their practical business and legal experience in using crowd funding to finance wind and solar projects and will explain the particulars about how crowd funding works. Please join us for a RADER Committee and GPSI Committee in-committee program to explore this unique type of funding for renewable energy projects.
