Even with the major advancements to today’s sophisticated technology, online sales still need to overcome many hurdles in order to win the trust of perspective investors. To start with, a lot of purchasers do not trust email as a reliable channel to safely & successfully transmit confidential documentation. Full email accounts and data size restrictions often hinder a seamless transfer of data between sales & their customers. But at least in the photovoltaic sector, there is now help at hand – in the form of Milk the Sun. Owners with PV project licences and solar energy installations to sell can now use the industry’s online marketplace (Milk the Sun) which provides them with free online space to securely save their data which they can subsequently make available to selected investors by allocating and controlling the individual access rights.
All documentation relevant to PV installations or project licences (contracts, statistical data, building plans, approval documents etc) can now easily be uploaded in HTTPS-encrypted format onto the Milk the Sun platform. Potential investors who are interested in buying these licences/installations only get full access to view the complete documentation, including the contact details of the provider, after they have been officially approved and allocated access to these secure areas. All information is provided in a standardised format in order to enable an effective comparison of data by potential investors. In this way both partners save valuable time and the prompt completion of the due diligence is also ensured. Supply and demand have direct contact & communication with each other.
Milk the Sun’s online platform offers users a clear overview of all offers currently available on the photovoltaic marketplace in Europe. All confidential project data is securely protected, stored in the online storage space allocated to that project/installation and is only ever made accessible to potential investors after a strict process of registration & approval. This entire process is carried out with the upmost confidentiality for our valued customers, thus completely removing all the problems commonly experienced when using email as the main communication channel.
