kWh Analytics

kWh Analytics is insuring the Energy Transition by leveraging the most comprehensive performance database of solar assets in the United States (30% of the U.S. asset class) and the strength of the global insurance markets. Through our products, kWh Analytics’ customers are able to minimize risk and increase equity returns of their renewable energy portfolios.

kWh Analytics invented the Solar Revenue Put to help solar investors reduce their biggest cost: the cost of capital. The credit enhancement has been valued by the leading project finance banks and implemented by top investors on $500M+ of solar projects. We wrote the book on “risk management” for solar investors, and our software solution, HelioStats, supports the market’s largest financial institutions on their data management and compliance obligations. kWh Analytics is backed by private venture capital and the US Department of Energy.
