    It's certainly good news that investors are opening up their eyes to solar projects! In my role as a financial modeller for project finance I have recently seen a surge in interest from institutional investors to fund this type of projects as well as other green inititives. Navigator Project Finance (www.navigatorPF.com) has recently been involved in solar farm projects in the UK, wind farms in Taiwan and several other sustainable initiatives and we definitely welcome this trend and appreciate your efforts in promoting them!
