How to Get the Funds

If you want to start your solar module production business, than you will have some equity (your own or from a partner), you will need maybe another investor and a bank for the loan.

What an Investor / Bank Will Expect?

If you want to have money from anybody, you have to convince him, that an investment in your business will be a good idea and he will earn a lot of money with it. This you will have to proof so the one who will decide for the money will have trust in you. The best way to create trust is a professional business case / business plan.

Written Part of the Business Plan

One part of the business plan with the description of what you are planing. There you will write about your product, what makes it special, where your location of the factory will be (and why exactly there), what will be the management structure, you will explain your marketing strategy (pricing, competition) and a lot more. This is important for an investor to realize the whole project in detail.

The written parts will have a lot of arguments why your production will be successful, you will have to make graphics and tables with facts and researches.

Financial Modeling

In the financial modeling you have to proof all what you promise in detailed figures: You make a detailed plan about the investment, what will be the costs for the production, what will be the material prices of all components in a panel.

You have to make a 5 years calculation of the cash flow and show the return of invest, the maximum invest that have to be done and you have to make different scenarios (worse case, normal case, best case).

Management Summary

The first thing that an investor wants to see is a small summary called "Management Summary" or "Executive Summary".

Here you make a summary of the written part and the financial modeling to an ultra compact information paper for the investor. All the most important points have to be inside like:

  • Cash Flow
  • Balance Sheet
  • Break Even
  • Profit an Loss
  • Strategy
  • And more

All these figures you will get out of your detailed plan.

After reading this summary the investor will decide if he wants to go into the details or not. So this is the first chance for you to convince the investor. If you will be successful in this part and - very important!!! - you are able to proof all this with a professional complete plan, than you will have a good chance to get the funds.

  • Thank you, Thoma and Patrick for these introductory lessons, I have been educated.
    I send an email with my inquiry.

  • Hi Patrick, Im very exited about your e-course. I’ve been in the solar industry for the past 12 years and were in a perfect place to manufacture Solar Panels due to high demand. After doing the full business plan we will be able to get to a cost per watt as this is what I’m currently interested in what that cost would be. I understand there are many factors that influence this i.e country, labour cost etc but before I pay $4900 I want to know if this is feasible to compete with the likes of solar panels imported from China. Can we please have a discussion around this before I can make this decision to buy your course

  • Great information provided. I will definitely need to propose for financing of a 5MW production facility in my local towy.

  • Great. The presentation was insightful. I will like to know the cost of business plan/ guide and duration for it’s delivery upon payment?

  • Hi. I hope you are doing well.
    Quick question, what about the materials? Can you provide info of the suppliers to put that info in the business plan?
    Thank you.
