Solar DAO 2.0: New DAO, Eco-Crowdfunding, New Tokens, ​and Social Responsibility

07.11.2018 — 0

Solar DAO Blockchain project to release free tokens and build a “green-kickstarter” Ecotopia.

principle-1

Solar DAO upgrades “closed fund” to an opened Marketplace Community. They are building a legal peer-to-peer environment for funding/backing projects from it in a variety of ways. Marketplace members will get a bunch of opportunities, for example, to choose sustainable projects to invest or to offer their own project or initiative and get funding through Solar DAO.

For Ecotopia to perform as real decentralized and autonomic system on smart contracts, Solar DAO is going to distribute free SD2 tokens, based on ERC721 standard which will be the mechanism of participants’ cooperation. The initial SDAO tokenholders become VIP-users and moderators of Ecotopia. They will also get other bonuses, which will be known later from the Solar DAO team.

token

There is no need for trust between its members in Solar DAO decentralized society based on smart-contracts. Trust is the basis of the foundation and, by the way, original Blockchain goal. The team will fulfill this by using the DAICO model to eliminate the trust issue between the nodes offering initiatives and the nodes supporting and financing these initiatives.

Transformed Solar DAO will become an instrument for eco-crowdfunding, enabling implementation of environmental programs, creation of renewable energy generation capacities and other green projects. The Solar DAO Community will unite conscious and progressive people who are ready to make breakthrough steps forward sustainable future.

project-life-cycle--2--1

Ecotopia platform members may have different roles. A person who wants to propose a project must make a special contribution to the project with SDAO tokens, and complete an extended verification. After a registration and detailed description of the project, first, Solar DAO team of international PV experts will evaluate it, then the project will be submitted for the consideration to Community (on this stage SDAO tokenholers will vote for its construction).

Till the end of 2018 the team is going to work hard on R&D and detailed functional description. And plans to distribute tokens (out of charge and in free access) in two stages in 2019.
The next information and greater announcement will be given later and are discussing in the official telegram chat.

roadmap-1

The Solar DAO origin was built in 2012, while the founders have been already working in solar industry since 1991. The geography of implemented projects is wide: Spain, Russia, South Africa, to name a few.

Solar Mining: Does It Work?

21.08.2018 — 0

There are lots of people out there who are sure mining with solar plants is possible. There are even more sources claiming the same.

big_logo-1
Solar DAO‘s CEO Dmitriy Solodukha on real possibilities of solar mining

Today, I will explain if mining with solar is profitable and how it really works.

Let me be straightforward with you, saying it is possible to mine with solar energy. But one needs to realize what is left behind the scene. So, here we are.

First and foremost, the cost of production of photo electricity is still rather high. The mining though, requires minimum electricity costs. For example, in summertime a regular solar power plant produces electricity in the period from 9 to 16. The point is it does so during only one hour and a half at the peak of its day activity per day. In winter, the amount is even less.

What Real Impact Does It Have on a Mining Rig?

23-Solar--powered-pumping-in-agriculture------
Connected to a Solar Plant, a 1 MW miner works productively about 1 hour a day. For the miner to pay off, it must work out in a 24/7 mode until it malfunction, which is about 2-3 years.
The area of a 1 MW Solar Plant is about 2 hectares, the size of 2 international rugby fields!

“Well, okay, but you can build a solar plant with some additional capacity” you might say.
Sure, you can. By taking into account the amount of grid power that a miner needs.

Let’s Do Some Math

23-Solar--powered-pumping-in-agriculture-1
Solar Farm’s day peak production

As an 1 MW miner operates 24 hours a day. It needs 24h 1 MW which equals 24 MWh per day.

Let’s say we take the average energy output per year. In order to get 24 MWh per day, we need 24 MWh/3 h = 8 MW. Meaning for one 1 MW miner, an 8 MW solar plant is needed.
And again, this is not to mention drastic ups and downs of solar activity. Given this, an accumulation system is required, which for 8 MW, will account for about another quarter of the field of storage containers. The price will respectively go up from $800 to $3000 per kW of installed capacity.

So you see, it can be done, but are huge energy bills worth it?

Being asked on a daily about solar mining companies, which are on the market, we want to address the Envion question here, too.
The company’s become known for using the power of sun in mining, but the mechanism they use is still not clear for most of us. Here is Solar DAO‘s guess to how it works.

--------1

First, a miner must be connected to the grid, but we all know how expensive electricity usually is. The question appears: how profitable is it? Along with that, another miner is being connected to a solar plant so solar energy would replace regular electricity.

The good news is you can save up to 10-12% of your financial assets per year. 一 Not bad, but again is all the pre-work worth that? And no one can guarantee that energy gained this way will be cheaper.

“In what cases can energy be cheaper?" If, for example, it costs $160 per MW in grid power like in Israel or the Baltic States, and solar power it will cost about $90 per MW, as, for example, in Israel, Portugal, etc. Remember that in the Baltic States there is no solar option!

And last but not least, to solar mine effectively, a tariff must be about $60/MWh or lower, which is also a rather hard to get.

As you can see, solar mining is possible, but its successful and profitable implementation has numerous challenges to it.
To do it right, you must consider a bunch of tricky moments, and spend much money on maintenance 24/7.

Is it worth it? The choice is up to you.

🚀 Solar DAO: Annual Report

25.07.2018 — 0

The key events and goals covering the period from July 2017 to July 2018.

Thank You!

Dear Solar DAO Community,

We are totally proud of working with such smart and supportive people like you. We always like to share the news with our participants and, sure, take the constructive criticism. Our project was made to find like-minded friends willing to change the way that renewable energy is going. So we want to thank everyone for the participation and understanding, it is really important to provide solar energy with any contribution you can make. Our mission is to find the most beneficial PV solar projects and implement them, your mission is much more global. Thank you!

Solar DAO

The idea of ​​Solar DAO was born in 2011.

That time I was working in the investment company “RusEnergoInvest”. Together with “LG CNS” we were implementing large photovoltaic solar projects. Suddenly, I came to understanding that when large investors, companies, and funds can invest in the solar plants’ construction, retail investors, I mean, the ordinary people who are not accredited as investors — cannot afford to participate in such solar business.

Of course, any person can build a small power system for his house. But what if you don’t have a private house, you know that household solar farm has a pretty low yield, and your government is not so RES supportive?

Unfortunately, I didn’t know about the Blockchain technology in 2011, and there was no any Ethereum. Even its origin. 🙂

In the autumn of 2016, I became interested in crypto technologies. I had started self-education and learned almost everything about it: its work principles, types, and so on. I also met with the first blockchain developers. Next, I understood that this technology can be used for my long-standing idea of ​​giving anyone the ability to participate in the solar industry growth.

White Paper 1.0

The whole winter of 2016 was devoted to the idea development and White Paper writing. Already in the spring (2017), we finished the first concepts, which have been tested and discussed with colleagues from The Token Fund, Emercoin, and some other projects. In April 2016 White Paper was completed, and in the summer it was shown to the first early participants. We planned to launch the ICO.

The WP creation was greatly influenced by such projects as TAAS, The Token Fund & Satoshi Pie.

PRE-ICO

The presale was scheduled for the period from July 27 to August 31, 2017, and we finally decided to continue it till the September 9. After the presale, we made several attempts to have loud marketing to win something for our project, I mean, marketing tests, but everything worked out to zero. Thus, we have the experience for future marketing strategy: saving funds is better than boosting silly campaigns.

No ICO

We have been preparing for the ICO for a long time. We tried to find a way to structure the company in order to conduct a legal ICO, well, or at least approximately legal. None of the ways was suitable for us. It took a lot of time to work with more than 10 different law companies trying to find the Eldorado.

We want to pay special thanks to the following Lawyers and Companies helping us to solve the issue:

*1. White Stone Digital: https://www.linkedin.com/company/white-stone-digital-inc./
2. CoinOffering: https://coinoffering.github.io
3. Hassans: http://www.gibraltarlaw.com
4. GSL Law&Consulting: http://gsl.org
5. Ormco: http://www.ormcogroup.com
6. https://prifinance.com
7. *https://www.eternitylaw.com

During this time, we were also trying to change the concept of Solar DAO to fit the conditions. Finally, we found the best option and stayed in the idea.

Solar DAO’s ICO was scheduled for October-November 2017. We moved it to the winter of 2018 because were busy on the legal structuring. After all, it was completely canceled. There are 1’172’767 SDAO released and no more tokens will be issued. We chose 2 crypto-exchanges for listing our tokens in order to make it usable and not so expensive (some of the exchanges take the listing fee up to the 40 BTC).

The Current Course

The main efforts of our team are strongly focused on the PV projects selection and implementation. Solar DAO will be a central part of the future Fund: a real legal structure for the serious solar project as it should be. And will be so.

We are glad that could finally connect crypto-opportunities with real legislation.

Dmitriy Solodukha — CEO and Founder of Solar DAO.

Key Milestones: 2017 — July 2018

  • July 27 — September 9. Pre-ICO;
  • September — April. Legal structuring;
  • September — Now. Project selection and implementation;
  • October 15. SDAO marketplace release;
  • December. First tokenholders’ voting. Listing on the exchanges (YoBit, IDEX);
  • January. Road Show;
  • February. ICO canceling, new course taking, AMA session;
  • March. KYC procedure starting;
  • March-April. Start of preliminary work and implementation of Kazakhstan and Portugal projects;
  • May-July. Kazakhstan tender preparations and participation, Portugal grid connection point getting.

Achievements

In this short period of time, our team has gained a lot of experience and success. The main important goal is the legal structuring finalization. Comparing more than 50 different ways to be incorporated, we stopped at the most convenient one, in our view.

Thus, Solar DAO now has the following legal info:

Business name: GOTOSOLAR OÜ
Address: Harju maakond, Tallinn, Kesklinna linnaosa, Roosikrantsi tn 2-K490, 10119

The company is already registered and now we are working on opening a bank account. At the same time, we prepare documents for obtaining the needful licenses. We expect it will take 2–3 months to receive licenses. Based on the results of this work, we plan to:

  • Coordinate KYC / AML procedures with the Bank;
  • Get the licenses allowing us to exchange cryptocurrency and storage it;
  • Conduct test operations with the Bank’s concern;

Road Show

The Solar DAO project participated at the Roadshow made by the Monaco Growth Forum in January 2018. Solar DAO has been represented to over 200 investors (Family Offices, Private Investors, and Funds) in 5 major financial centers of Europe (London, Zurich, Geneva, Lugano, Milano). We got positive feedback and began to work with the people we met.

“Plant a tree” Solar DAO’ Contest

Community Rocks!

Within the first year, Solar DAO has doubled its Community several times. We have more than 2’000 members on our Facebook page, more and more friends are joining us every day. As our last poll shows, Solar DAO Community is a really strong group of people connected by our positive mission to change the future and help renewable energy growth. We care that you are not bored in staying with us, while are waiting for new Solar DAO records in fresh reports :), so we come up with different contests and events. We seriously intend to hold an offline Solar DAO event this year!

Our special thanks are to our contests participants. With your help, we now have a future logo, lots of memes, and even live trees! That’s the best attitude to participate actively.

Surprise. We want to share a small present with our dear Community. 
Here is the Solar DAO Telegram Sticker-pack. https://t.me/addstickers/SolarDAO. Take it, it’s free. 🙂 Hope it will be useful in your conversation about the environment. Thank you for the participation and support, friends.

Better Not to Hurry

We understand that Solar DAO can seem to be much slower in comparison with other blockchain projects. We are also very pleased that our community understands the real state of things and supports us in our way to build solar plants, taking into account all possible risks, and doing it carefully.

I. In order to save the funds, we previously decided not to buy a solar plant in operation to test dividends payment. The cost of a PVS in operation with under 30 kW is comparable to the cost of building a PVS 1 MW (1000 kW), and their average return (ROI) is about 7% per year. For the sake of our participant’s benefit, we are to construct the solar power plants from scratch.

II. So, no test distribution of dividends was made a month after the end of the Pre-ICO. According to preliminary estimates, it would have been about 0.225% of the participation amount. Plus we need to take into account all of the transfer fees.

III. One can also complain about our first Kazakhstan results. Solar DAO team made a huge work in the unreal short way and found a partner to provide the $300’000 financial guarantee in order to participate in tariff bidding. Unfortunately, the final suggested tariff was not suitable for our needs. That’s why we preferred to attend the next Tender in Kazakhstan with 12,5 times bigger quota (250 MW) which will take place in October 2018.

**Bonus: **We have already started to select additional profitable opportunities for construction in Bulgaria, Asia, and the Middle East.

Marketing Report

As we have previously said, Solar DAO doesn’t support the usual way blockchain projects make their marketing. We are aimed to make it classic: provide people with useful content, find suitable partners, doing PR. Each of you can take a part in this campaign by following and reposting.

Nevertheless, we have boosted our marketing last month. During the August we want to refresh the information about our project on Crypto-Relevant platforms and websites.

Here is an example** data of our Facebook page statistics**, which will be just the only start of our marketing (July 2017 — July 2018):
256 Posts, 5’247 Likes, 1’938 Shares, 2’108 Fans.

Twitter & Facebook engagement growth for the last 3 months

Facebook subscribers growth for the last 2 months

**Besides, we’ve achieved **2’300 views to our Youtube announcement video

Offline Events

During this year, our team took its time to attend a few ecxhibitions, and also to conduct an educational meetup.

Aleksander Melekhavets lecturing about the Solar Energy for Imaguru

We plan to attract more people to join our project and to reach the mark of 3000 members by the end of 2018. Solar DAO will not pump the token price, as our tokenholders are the long-term participants, and we sure that it will be more stable and higher after the audience growth.

In the next 3 month, our marketing plans are:

  • Expand the audience in social media;
  • Make more contests and online-events for the Community;
  • Start to be published in magazines and media, including crypto-oriented ones. (Probably 2–3 times a month);
  • Partner with other projects to benefit one another’s;
  • Conduct an offline event;
  • Renew the reporting policy, give more information about our team’s work;
  • Attend the solar shows to reach useful contacts;

We are always open for suggestions, as we’re doing our best for the Community. If any questions, ask the team via the official Solar DAO Telegram Chat.

No Conclusion But work

Thanks for your time, more news will be available soon. Don’t forget to share the information about Solar DAO with your friends and subscribe to our newsletter.

Kazakhstan Projects: Tenders for the Tariff, Results & Plans

14.06.2018 — 0

Dear Community!

As you know, all of the successful projects live each week like a year. Almost all of the Solar DAO efforts was accumulated in the offline work. In addition to our main tasks of solar project selection, we’ve had time to start the new marketing campaigns, give a lecture about the Blockchain & Solar Energy to the children, and start a small green contest.

Aleksander Melekhavets lecturing about the Solar Energy | Solar DAO green contest

You may also remember the plan for Kazakhstan projects implementation which we started to follow. For the sake of profitable work and minimal risks, we were needed to participate in two stages of Tariff Bidding. We aimed to implement 1MW + 2MW + 5MW with different proportions of Equity and Debt financing.

The first Tender Fase on 28th of May was not held at all due to lack of bids.

According to the legal rules, it needs to be at least 3 participants bidding for the 150% of suggested quota.

On the second short period of time, we needed to prepare for the Tender on June 6.

Our team has succeeded with the financial partnership. The rule for Tender participation is to have enough funds to bid. In order to do it and to get the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), we agreed to accept a $300’000 financial guarantee from our partner in return for the interest.

Thus, Solar DAO was to:

  • Provide our partner with a return of at least 20%
  • Save its share of 25%, required for goals and profitability. In other cases, we and community don’t need such a project.

Summed up this conditions, the minimal tariff advantageous for Solar DAO was $0,095/kWh.

The second Tariff Tender took 9 companies (92,9 MW in total) bidding for 20 MW quota. During the 3-hour session, the tariff was decreased from $0.105/kWh to $0.088/kWh. Finally,** such conditions were not suitable for our needs and the funds attracted for this bidding .**

Instead, we have collected the necessary partner contacts, passed all the stages getting experience, and did not waste the funds.

What’s next?

  • We continue our work in Kazakhstan. The next step is to attract the funds for this projects but with more loyal and comfortable conditions. We are sure about success, as we will have more time for negotiations and to be prepared.
  • The next Tender in Kazakhstan with 12,5 times bigger quota (250 MW) will take place in October. Solar DAO definitely going to take a part there.
  • We have already started to select the profitable opportunities for construction in Bulgaria, Asia, and the Middle East.
  • Within a few weeks, we plan to boost our marketing campaign in order to attract more financial partners for our projects.

Stay tuned!

Legal registration completed. The details

28.04.2018 — 0

As you already know, in addition to PV Solar Plants total capacity expanding, the main mission of Solar DAO is to become a part of the main Fund. In order to reduce the risks of possible claims against Solar DAO from regulators, we decided to implement the legal structure we previously described.

To allow Solar DAO team and participants get the desired result, for the Solar DAO project implementation purposes, we decided to register the company in Estonia.

Thus, Solar DAO now has the following legal info:

Business name: GOTOSOLAR OÜ
Address: Harju maakond, Tallinn, Kesklinna linnaosa, Roosikrantsi tn 2-K490, 10119
Tel .: +372 880 4272

What’s next?

The company is already registered and now****we are working on openning a bank account. At the same time, we prepare documents for obtaining the needful licenses. We expect it will take 2–3 months to receive licenses. Based on the results of this work, we plan:

  • Coordinate KYC / AML procedures with the Bank;
  • Get the licenses allowing us to exchange cryptocurrency and storage it;
  • Conduct test operations with the Bank’s concern;

Why Estonia?

Generally, Estonia is considered to be among the most favorable jurisdictions for ICOs in the world. According to the researchers, Estonia is in the top 15 countries in the world based on amounts of ICOs launched. According to ICO funding report , out of the total $240M raised in Estonia, 28% was collected through ICOs.

Estonia is often compared with countries such as Switzerland, Gibraltar, Lithuania, Singapore and some other, in having the similar approach to ICOs.

What do we get?

Since such registration is one of the most suitable and advantageous ways, now we have the opportunity to:

  • Own other entities in the countries of projects’ implementation;
  • Receive agency fees after selling ready projects;
  • Conduct the profit distribution between the tokenholders;
  • Participate in the main Fund;
  • Have the special licenses to exchange Fiat — Crypto for subsequent distribution.

Energy consumption per capita. Country Ranking

25.04.2018 — 0

From 2000 to 2013, global energy investments have increased by 100%. It’s not just about popularizing renewable energy since the lion’s share of electricity needed of the population is generated as earlier — from fossil energy sources. Besides the rapid growth of global energy consumption, mankind has to face the increase of harmful emissions and environmental worsening.

Total world’s energy consumption increasing

To visually show the responsibility’s share of each person and to note which countries should try to reduce electricity consumption or accelerate the green energy transition, let’s look at the World Bank’s report on the energy consumption per capita in different countries:

Energy consumption per capita, 2015

For the sake of clear result, consumption is calculated in fuel equivalent — the amount of oil needed to provide a certain level of energy.

Top 10 Leaders in Energy Consumption:

Resource: World Bank Group

Necessary to know

To really understand how important it is to care for the environment, we want to show how “expensive” electricity is.

Take for example an ordinary home light bulb with a power of 100 watts. Let’s leave the lights on throug the whole year*(sure, you will need to replace the bulb several times, you know :))*.

Let’s make a simple calculation:

  • 24 hours a day = 8760 hours per year.
  • 0.1 kW multiply by 8760 = 876 kW/hour.

In order to ensure the operation of one bulb during the year, we need to:

  • Burn 320 kg of coal (1 ton of coal approximately gives 2500 kW/hour)
  • Spend 2 hours for a wind turbine with a capacity of 1.5 MW, 25% of efficiency.
  • Take 35 minutes for a solar power plant with a capacity of 1.5 MW (an area of ​​about 3 hectares, imagine!).
  • Decay 16 grams of Uranium.
  • Spend 2.5 hours of a hydro-electric turbine operation, with a capacity of 339 kW.

We wanted to show clearly that any extra consumption of electricity is detrimental to ourselves. Please, love renewable energy and save resources.

Do you have other examples? What resources does the electrical device work cost? Put in the comments, we will be glad to discuss!

Solar Energy development tendency in 2018

04.04.2018 — 0

As you already know, renewable energy is a promising technology not only to minimize electricity costs but also significantly reduce the negative effect on Ecology. Every year, solar energy increases its pace of development, while reducing productional costs. According to SolarPower Europe, in 2017 the European countries have built 8.6 GW of solar plants, which is almost 2 GW more than a year before. The total solar generation capacity in Europe was 110 GW last year.

Energy Trend made an encouraging forecast for Solar Energy growth in 2018. According to the company, the new installed capacity will pass the mark of 100 GW this year. The solar industry leader — China — will build solar power of almost 50 GW. Despite the fact that China’s RES development rate will be reduced (it was rather bigger than 50 GW last year),** the****global growth will be achieved through the European countries**.

Spain, Mexico, Egypt, the Netherlands, and Brazil will be the new leaders in the solar industry development, — according to Greentech Media research. These countries will cross the 1 GW point and compete with the “old solar champions”.

We should also mention Spain. The country declared plans to build more than 20 GW of solar power plants in various territory parts in 2018. Spain has rich resources for using solar generation due to the high insolation level. The largest project companies like Enel and High Energy are to build PVS without using government funding. Thus, Spain will become a competitive country and will only increase its own installed capacity.

An additional reason for the European Solar Energy growth is the end of the minimum import price (MIP) for solar modules in September 2018, the restriction imposed by the European Commission.

What about the US?

As we remember, in the last 2 years the United States policy in relation to renewable energy has changed dramatically. In June 2017, the country left from the Paris Agreement aimed at preventing global warming and reducing CO2 emissions. The United States have declined support and funding for large-scale green energy development.

Despite this, the number of states that have passed 1 GW point of installed capacity will increase to 18 (from 2018 to 2020), — GreenTech Media reports.

The US solar generation cost for domestic use will remain the highest in the world. An important reason for this is the high customs duties for foreign solar modules. Thus, local producers will be forced to look for ways to reduce the cost by changing production.

Source: greentechmedia.com

The****US solar energy market growth will decline by more than 10%. Again, because of high customs duties. According to GreenTech, the problem will become especially noticeable next year, when early imported photo-electric modules will be no more available.

Q1’2018 Report — PV Solar Plants Implementation & One More Thing.

01.04.2018 — 0

We launch our first group of PV solar plants implementation: 8 MW in Kazakhstan and 1 MW in Portugal. We are also going to distribute additional profit among SDAO token holders. Read more…

1. First solar plants’ implementation begins

We are happy to announce that we launch first group of PV solar plants implementation:

  • Kazakhstan: 0.5 MW + 1 MW + 2.5 MW in the north-west area.
  • Kazakhstan: 0.5 MW + 1 MW + 2.5 MW in the south area.
  • **Portugal: 4 x 0.25 MW (1 MW totally) **near the town of Loule.

Projects in Kazakhstan require the insurance deposit at the stage of tariff bidding and another one before the (Power Purchase Agreement) PPA is signed (Power Purchase Agreement).

In Portugal we chose additional sites for more solar plants with the help of our Community. We really appreciate such assistance, thank you! As soon as we get permission for the grid connection in the first plant, we could increase the total power capacity.

Since November 2017 and especially during the last 2 months we have been focused on selection of solar projects at a “ready to build” stage for further construction.

We have studied and updated legislation of the following countries: Portugal, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Poland, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Greece, Albania, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Turkey, Iran, Israel and Thailand.

We have studies and reviewed about 30 projects with a single plant capacity from 500 kW to 10 MW, in total over 150 MW.

NOTE: Some projects consist of several parts, like 12 plants by 100 kW, 4 by 1 MW or 35 MW divided by 1.25 MW pieces. They are considered as a single one.

So. Finally, we have made a difficult decision not to purchase project companies offered on the market. Instead, to get the highest return with the lowest risk (as we initially planned), we decided to implement our own projects. It means we are going to save about $50’000 per MW in costs, while the development cost will be lower than $5’000 per MW.

1.1. Projects’ implementation plan (micro roadmap):

Kazakhstan: 4 MW totally in north-west area & 4 MW in south area

  • Company formation in Kazakhstan → in process. We plan to complete it by mid-April.
  • Documents’ preparation to participate in bidding for the tariff, according to the new rules published in March 2018 → in process. To be completed by mid-May.
  • Advertising and PR campaign of planned projects, getting support from local authorities → April-May-June.
  • Public auction → end of May for the north-west zone and early June for the southern zone.
  • Electricity purchase contract signing — until the end of August.
  • External financing attraction for project implementation.
  • Construction, grid connection and commissioning.

Portugal

  • Getting the connection point and preliminary contract for the Grid connection — in the process. We plan to finish it by the end of April.
  • Company registration, land purchase — May-June.
  • Document preparations for tariff getting — May-June.
  • Competitive selection — specifying the dates.

You can read more information about all the stages and project work here.

2. Additional profit to distribute

We continue our experiment on the sale of solar plants in operation and other profitable proposals. We are packaging them (photography, videography, advertising and so on) and subsequent sale with a success fee (agency commission). If work succeeds, we are to:

  • Attract more investors to the main fund that we form,
  • Get additional funds for the PV projects implementation,
  • Distribute up to 50% of the earnings among the token holders.

After our recent trip to Greece, we made great proposals for the PV solar plants in operation for sale. Check this out:

Also there is a 5.3 MW project in Poland. We considered this project as one of the main for construction in April but the risk level (too high for us today) has forced us to refuse it. Now we want to sell it effectively.

Share it!

We would be grateful if you share the links above with your audience!

We strive to do our best for our Community benefit and are always happy to chat with you in our Telegram group. Stay with us, soon we will tell another news. Thanks for your support!

Solar DAO project opened unique opportunities for investors!

29.03.2018 — 0

Investing in the solar plants’ construction is gaining popularity for several decades but not so long ago it was available only to big companies interested in scale financing.
