Trina Solar US Shares Outlook for Energy Buyers at Renewable Energy Revenues Summit USA

Trina Solar US, a global leader in smart solar products and energy solutions, played a pivotal role at the 2024 Renewable Energy Revenues Summit. Rob Gibbons, Strategic Development Manager at Trina Solar, shared the stage with industry experts to provide insights during the panel discussion titled "How Tax Equity is Being Factored into C&I Deals Post IRA." Rob's expertise illuminated the impact of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) on solar and battery energy storage system (BESS) projects, particularly regarding tax equity financing strategies.

The panel discussion provided a comprehensive outlook into the opportunities available for energy buyers post-IRA and the integration of new benefits into agreements, as well as highlighting the implications for tax-exempt organizations. As Trina Solar continues to drive innovation and growth in the renewable energy sector, Rob's insights from the summit offered a valuable perspective on navigating this evolving energy landscape.

“The IRA’s introduction of transferability for investment tax credits creates a significant opportunity to expand the universe of tax equity providers, as well as streamline the process for securing tax equity financing,” said Gibbons. “We have seen several of our distributed generation clients choosing not to tap the tax equity market due to the cost, complexity and timing associated with traditional tax equity financing. Trina’s tax equity approach is designed to provide a straightforward, accretive solution that can be seamlessly incorporated within our clients’ solar project development.”

Trina Solar provides a range of solutions to help improve project returns for clients. Along with other financing solutions, Trina Solar US is an active tax equity investor. The tax credit transfer market allows Trina to scale tax equity investments in line with its US manufacturing footprint to continue to support its clients’ success.
