Capitalizing on a sunrise industry

LEANDRO LEVISTE was only 20 years old when he said he started investing in Tesla and Solar City, both US companies that specialized in manufacturing solar panels. He observed that when the stock price of Tesla did well, it illustrated that the market had underestimated the potential for solar energy. Inspired by this, he believed that he could bring this energy solution to the Philippines, where the electricity rates were among the highest. In 2013, he invested his savings to set up Solar Philippines Power Project Holdings, Inc. (Solar Philippines).
