Solar REIT press coverage expands

More analyses are appearing in the trade and general press about enabling REITs to invest in solar projects.  Solar REITs occupy page one of the Business section in today’s New York Times.  Last week, Bloomberg & Renewable Energy World noted that the Internal Revenue Service is considering allowing a start-up solar REIT in California to commence operations.  A speaker at a NE Clean Energy Council forum in Boston today noted that the IRS private letter ruling could be narrow in scope, focusing just on roof-top installations where the power is consumed on-site.  Still, support is increasing.
