Purpose: Investment in a solar electric system as a bridge from consumer mindset to (impact) investor mindset. Establish a long-term investment fund with no or limited lifestyle change.
Quick sketch: A homeowner goes solar with up to 100% financing. The homeowner commits to pay (to a third party) what her monthly electric bill would have been had she not gone solar. Portions of the payment are sent to the financing company (if applicable) and the utility (for the electric bill portion not offset by solar). The remaining portion is her net electric bill savings, which is automatically invested on her behalf (TBD what this investment portfolio looks like).
