Solar innovation proposal

I present to entrepreneurs, investors and power traders, a suggestion that, in my view, has the merit to "indulge in the market's taste".

Set up reverse solar PV power price auctions for residential customers.

The bidders would compete for prices to invest, install, operate and maintain a solar system on the customer's roof, in exchange for a long-term contract where the monthly cost would be charged at a % of the ongoing regulated rates in effect.

The applicants would indicate the basic information that characterizes their needs (location, local electric power utility, monthly power consumption, etc.).

Simple, easy, beneficial for everyone and that would have the merit of offering more competitive power to the customer, who would then have no other task than to pay (energy as a service).

And above all, scale would be gained, as the applicants would be grouped in each auction!

Anyone wishing to explore this possibility, I am available to help assemble the strategy, create an operational plan ("to make it happen") and support the executives who will take the lead in this endeavor.
