The fund will account for the capital cost of solar equipment and installation. The financing partner has not been disclosed.

Radford Small, SolarCity's executive vice president, capital markets, said: “This is the second tax equity fund we've closed during the first quarter as we continue our cash generation post-ITC extension and plan to continue our momentum.”
