About Us

Co-founded in 2012 by Distributed Sun, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, Rocky Mountain Institute and Underwriters Laboratories, the truSolar® Working Group is a non-profit consortium of solar industry companies committed to developing a common risk assessment standard for commercial and industrial clean energy projects.

Since its formation, truSolar has engaged with over 500 solar industry professionals to gather their perspectives on solar project risk and how best to manage investment uncertainty.

What is truSolar?

1) the Risk Screen Criteria and Methodology (RSCM) to screen and score non-residential solar photovoltaic investments.

2) the risk taxonomy or framework that identifies risk elements that impact generation of kilowatt-hours and cash flows over the operating life of non-residential solar photovoltaic investments.
