Wunder Capital is a unique investment platform that connects investors with commercial solar energy projects that need funding. The company does this by creating solar investment funds comprised of mid-sized solar companies that it thoroughly vets.
The company’s website describes Wunder Capital as a financial technology company. But Wunder Capital manages all aspects of the process, making it easy for accredited investors who want to fund solar projects and add them to their portfolios. The funds have also produced decent returns. And a recent round of Series B funding raised $112 million in debt and equity financing.
The companies in Wunder’s funds are in the field of supplying solar energy to commercial properties. And according to Wunder, this is a segment of the solar market that is lagging compared to the residential and utility segments.
Wunder’s co-founder and CEO, Bryan Birsic, notes the company has partnered with more than 100 commercial solar developers and installers in 27 states. The solar companies have direct contact with their commercial customers. They bring in Wunder to help them get their finances in shape, including providing the companies with funding via the firm’s investment funds.
Wunder is filling a need for funding for mid-sized solar companies that have had trouble getting loans from commercial banks due to the costs associated with making these loans to solar startups in need.
But besides providing financing to solar firms, Wunder’s funds deliver investors a one-stop, diversified portfolio of solar loans.
Wunder Capital’s founders are smart people who want to make a difference by helping to fund solar energy companies. Wunder Capital uses its proprietary algorithms to automate the process of funding contractors and firms engaged in commercial solar projects.
