    The Sunshot Incubator program provides early-stage assistance to help startup companies cross technological barriers to commercialization while encouraging private sector investment. Since the program was launched in 2007, $138 million in government funds has leveraged more than $3.1 billion in venture capital and private equity investment. More than 100 startup companies have received awards to participate in the SunShot Incubator program since it began in 2007, working to develop and launch transformative photovoltaic, concentrating solar power, grid integration, system installation, and soft costs products and services. The Incubator program takes an all-inclusive approach to significantly lower the total installed cost of solar energy systems. The program was combined with other funding programs into the SunShot Technology to Market and SunShot Technology to Market 2 funding programs with the goal of bringing disruptive innovation to the solar industry in the near term that will take root in the U.S.
