Tangerine Solar

Tangerine Solar develops photovoltaic installations by matching local micro-funders with community institutions that want clean power. In order to create a project plan that could be efficiently redeployed in communities across North America, Tangerine needed to intimately understand the relationships between photovoltaic technology, project lending, securities regulation, tax code, community dynamics, and renewable energy incentives. To make the promise of community solar a reality, they partnered with Forward Mapworks.

By exploring the connectedness between stakeholder values, legal frameworks, and financial regulations, we developed a project finance simulation tool. By setting system conditions in the simulation model to mimic real-world conditions on the ground, Tangerine can use the tool to fine tune their development model for any solar project in any jurisdiction.
