All Sunny Pool projects are required to meet these minimum requirements:
Type of investment
RE / EE / Solar PV Plant
$400k – $10M
Frontier countries and LDCs
Each project and borrower is proposed by whitelisted partners and has to be approved through SI Governance. Only borrowers who have successfully completed multiple solar projects in the past are qualified.
Impact Measurement System
Borrowers are required to report the created impact to SI Network. This could be through a provided interface access via Modbus. An IoT device provided by SI Team is able to record and evaluate generated power to the blockchain. However, manual reportings are sufficient for the first version of the Transparent Impact Measurement System.
The following information will be measured:
Clean energy production (in kWh)
Reduced CO2 emissions (in kgs)
