Mosaic, the Oakland-based solar financing startup has launched a solar home loan financing project - Mosaic Home Solar Loan. This is aimed at helping homeowners own their solar system outright, without having to pay upfront for the total cost of the system. They will pay back the loan covering the cost of the solar system over a 20 year term, with an interest rate of 8 percent. Mosaic is in partnership with RGS Energy, which will install the solar systems financed under the program. Read more here.
