Sol Systems, LLC and Cooley LLP are pleased to announce a webinar series on bankable solar contracts for solar installers, developers and investors. Each webinar in the series will lead participants through key terms and issues of a different contract and will provide an opportunity for Q&A. The webinars will be hosted by Sol Systems’ CEO Yuri Horwitz, Cooley Clean Energy and Technologies group attorneys, and guest panelists.
The webinar series is a complement to the strategic collaboration announced by Sol Systems and Cooley last fall. Through this collaboration, Cooley developed a suite of legal e-documents and tailored consulting services for Sol Systems’ SolMarket users. SolMarket is a transaction-driven community that facilitates solar project origination and investment and currently has more than $1.7 billion in aggregate partnership funds. Members of the SolMarket community have access to this network of funding as well as transaction and financial resources. SolMarket members can view and utilize Cooley’s form legal templates as well as request direct consultations with Cooley attorneys.
“The Cooley collaboration and our suite of legal templates are critical to our overarching goal of driving efficiencies and uniformity into the solar space,” said Horwitz. “Cooley and Sol Systems are focused on connecting a fragmented solar industry and helping solar companies operate more efficiently.”
“This collaboration with Sol Systems is part of Cooley’s deep commitment to the innovative delivery of legal services and business insight in the clean energy and technology space,” said Cooley Partner Tom Amis, co-chair of the firm’s Clean Energy and Technologies practice. “SolMarket is rapidly becoming a go-to resource for some of the most exciting and ambitious players in the solar and clean energy space, from across the United States and further afield.”
