Welcome to Episode 82 of Suncast!

Did you check out this week's Tactical Tuesday, another great one on Energy Storage with SepiSolar CEO, Josh Weiner! Listen to it here!

Today on SunCast, are returning to the Solar Pioneers Series with one of the large-scale solar project development greats, Ed Feo of Coronal Energy.

As you'll hear, Ed has a fabled history in the renewables industry. Accolades like "Attorney of the Decade" or "One of the 5 most influential people in Renewable Energy" are earned in the trenches, and Ed's been in the deal room more than just about anyone – having worked on hundreds of deals and over $35B in transactions during his 23 yr tenure leading the Project Finance practice at law firm Millbank.

Tune-in as we discuss these topics: 

  • How Ed's favorite past time has greatly influenced his leadership style 
  • What it means to develop "plate discipline" even as a home-run hitter 
  • Details of Coronal's industry-first "solar put" contract with kWh Analytics
  • The 3 things it takes to be a successful project development company
