Last week, Blackstone announced it was ponying up $200 million for the construction of some new solar projects in the U.S.
That cash will be used by Altus Power, which operates in the commercial and industrial solar market, and also dabbles in EV charging technology and battery storage.
Of course, $200 million is just a drop in the bucket when you consider that Blackstone recently raised $7.1 billion to finance a wealth of new “cleaner” energy technologies, with a sizable amount of that being deployed into solar projects.
But don’t get it twisted.
This has nothing to do with Blackstone being “woke” or turning into some kind of fund for treehuggers and hippies.

As the global energy economy continues to transition to one that will ultimately be heavily weighted in renewable energy and energy storage, capital needs are enormous. And this has led to some very attractive deal terms.
So attractive, in fact, that many of these new solar deals are being funded by some of the richest people on the planet. Particularly by way of private solar royalties, which are essentially monthly cash dividends you can earn from various solar projects across the globe.
Elon Musk is in some of these private solar royalties to the tune of $2.6 billion.
Warren Buffett actually has more than $4 billion invested in these private solar royalty deals.
Individual companies are also going big on private solar royalties, with Google in for $5 billion, Apple in for $4.7 billion, and Amazon in for $2 billion.
Of course, sweetheart deals like these aren’t anything new for the wealthy elite. But thanks to an obscure SEC rule change, regular investors like you and I can also take part in these deals. And you can even get in for as little as $100, and still make a fortune.
In fact, starting with just $100, you could make as much as $98,325.
Turn that $100 into $500, and you’re now looking at $491,625.
That’s nearly a half million dollars!
So it’s no wonder private solar royalties are so popular with billionaires. It’s easy money, and the best part is, these royalty deals are NOT tied to the public markets. Even when the broader public markets are tanking, your royalty payments don’t change.
I should also point out that these are monthly payments, and deal terms can keep these income streams active for anywhere from 15 to 20 years.
Now if you’re a regular reader of these pages, you may have seen me write about these private solar royalties in the past. But I’m telling you about them again, today, because we just got word that a new one may be launching soon. And I want to make sure you can get some of this action for yourself.
Elon Musk, Warren Buffett and Jeff Bezos are already making money from private solar royalties. And now that the SEC is allowing us to wet our beaks on these deals, too, there’s no reason you should be sitting on the sidelines. You can learn how to sign up for your own private solar royalties here. To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth… Jeff Siegel
