Mosaic just closed a $250 million warehouse facility with Deutsche Bank. Together with recent upsizes to Mosaic‘s existing warehouse facility and a forward flow whole loan sale arrangement, this agreement provides Mosaic with $550 million of new loan funding capacity.
“More and more homeowners are looking for an effective path to energy savings,” said Billy Parish, founder and chief executive officer at Mosaic. “The credit facility with Deutsche Bank provides meaningful capacity to fund the growing demand for residential solar projects.”
“Solar loans are becoming a more common financing choice for people that purchase solar panel systems, and we’re pleased to work with industry leaders like Solar Mosaic to advance this growing asset class,” said Rob Sannicandro, Director at Deutsche Bank.
This financing comes on the heels of an equity financing round of up to $220 million led by Warburg Pincus in August and a $200 million warehouse facility lead by Germany’s DZ BANK in April. Mosaic is the largest solar lender in the US with a network of over 250 solar companies that offer the Company’s financing products. This includes 21 of the top 25 installers nationally, representing more than 85% of the residential solar market in the U.S.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
