A few weeks ago we published Episode 15 with my friend Rodrigo Barfield of Long Light Energy. Last year in 2016, he had moved back to Brazil to run his new company, and we discussed his thoughts on the market. As with many startups, things don’t always go as planned, and I hinted at the end of the show that Rod had an update pending.
In this episode of SunCast, we have a followup call with Rodrigo. While he is still actively developing business in Brazil, he has made the decision to return to the US. Today we discuss Rod’s thoughts on the state of Brazil in 2017, what it would take for the market to be "ready" for his project pipeline, as well as why he believes the US market is hotter than ever, especially for DG finance.
As always, If you like what you hear, please SHARE it!
