(2016-07-18 08:38:50) dawei Solar power provider SolarCity Corp. said Monday it had raised $345 million to fund new solar projects.
The financing, which came from four partners in June and July, will cover the capital cost of new equipment and installations.
In addition to the new funds, the company also added $110 million and two new lenders to its debt facility, which is now is $760 million. SolarCity also expanded its solar renewable energy credit financing facility to accept five years of hedged facilities in a move the company said will significantly lower its cost of financing and to draw more capital from it.
