Borrego Solar Systems Inc., San Diego, recently announced it will offer its own financing program for commercial solar energy projects. The new power-purchase agreement (PPA) program gives its customers a way to finance solar projects without having to assume the up-front costs or work with a third-party financier. It is positioned to develop and finance more than $100 million of solar projects throughout the next 12 months. “We continue to see significant demand for grid-tied solar systems, but a common concern for many customers is the lack of financing available to design, install, and maintain the systems,” says Mike Hall, chief executive of Borrego Solar. “By choosing a Borrego PPA, customers deal with one company for system financing, design, construction, operation, and maintenance.” For more information, visit
