Our strategy is based on continuously increasing our competitiveness via the industrialization of all components of the value chain, from development, procurement and construction through to financing and operations. We are always striving towards continuous improvement.
Systematic reduction of procurement costs
From the beginning, Solairedirect has always sought to systematically and substantially reduce its procurement costs for photovoltaic modules and system components, such as inverters, structures, equipment, etc. This reduction has been possible thanks to close collaboration with suppliers in order to standardize equipment and benefit from economies of scale, focusing on developing a modular approach.
Reduction of operating costs
Standardizing processes and implementing sound organization of the operation and maintenance on an ever-growing asset base is the key to achieving regular and significant cost reduction.
Optimization of the financing process
Since 2008, Solairedirect has enjoyed significant reductions in the cost of financing its projects, due to various factors:
- Reduced costs and timelines in financing, thanks to a standardization of legal documents.
- Lower real and perceived risk by banks and investors due to the strength of the operating capacity on an increasingly large installed asset base, which generates very stable and predictable cash flows.
- The implementation of financing platforms with major institutional investors wishing to invest increasingly large amounts in a class of relatively low risk assets.
