SolarCity has confirmed details of a new US$201.5 million financing round secured against the revenues from a pool of smaller PV systems.

The company pulled off the first deal with securitisation against residential PV installs in November 2013. It followed that US$54 million round with a second US$70 million issue in April 2014.

The latest round will include US$160 million of notes with an interest rate of 4.026% and US$41.5 million with an interest rate of 5.45%.

The first deal had an interest rate of 4.8% suggesting that there is increasing confidence in the model driving down the interest rate.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
