Announces Largest Solar Loan Securitization to Date at $382.7 Million and Expands Executive Team with Two New Hires
Oakland, Calif., April 21, 2022 – Mosaic, a leading financing platform for U.S. residential solar and energy-efficient home improvements, today announced it has surpassed $7 billion in loans funded through the company’s platform. This milestone signals a strong first quarter for the mission-driven company, which also achieved its highest monthly loan volume to date in March.
“There’s a growing importance of clean renewable energy as an economic engine, a climate imperative, and a matter of national security,” said Billy Parish, founder and CEO of Mosaic. “The urgency to deliver affordable financing options for our partners and homeowners is growing, and Mosaic is uniquely positioned to help lead this charge.”
The $7 billion milestone was passed in mid-March and was fueled by the company’s strong industry relationships, operational capabilities and numerous capital partners. Mosaic also recently completed a $382.7 million securitization. This was Mosaic’s largest securitization to date and included the addition of Fitch Ratings, rating the senior (AA-) tranche of the transaction. Mosaic has now completed 12 securitizations over the course of six years, which is more than any other solar loan issuer in the space. Additionally, Mosaic continues to build new forward flow and direct origination partnerships with banks, credit unions, insurance companies and asset managers to further strengthen its diversified funding model.
