Solar Financing for Contractors FAQs
Why should I offer solar financing?
There are several benefits of offering solar financing to your customers. One of the primary benefits is that it can help you close more sales. Many people are hesitant to install solar panels because they don’t have the money to pay for them up front. Offering financing options makes it easier for them to afford solar and can help you close more sales. Another benefit of offering financing is that it can help you attract more customers. By providing low-interest financing options, you can make solar more affordable for more people, which can draw in new customers who might not have considered solar before.
Can all solar projects be financed?
Yes. Some lenders may be more stringent than others when considering financing because not all projects meet their criteria, and this can vary from lender to lender. But in general, most solar projects in the United States can usually be financed with a variety of lending partners.
How does solar financing work?
The process for applying for solar financing is relatively simple with options available to apply in person or online. If you’re working with a lending partner, your customers will need to provide some basic information about their home and finances. Once the application is approved, the money will be sent directly to you who will install the panels. Customers will typically start making monthly payments immediately, although there are some financing options that allow customers to pay off the system over time. Monthly payments vary depending on the size of the system, but they’re typically lower than a homeowner’s regular electricity bill.
How would my clients benefit from financing a solar system rather than paying in one lump sum?
One of the major benefits of financing a solar is to keep cash and equity on hand, so there’s no risk to you should your cash or credit needs change before purchase. There are also several tax incentives and rebates and even states that have programs available that offer cash payments or discounts for homeowners who install solar panels and use financing. So, financing your solar installation may end up being cheaper than paying for it out of pocket.

Offering financing enables you to close more sales and earn more money on every job. By translating a large, expensive home improvement into a low monthly payment, you’re less likely to lose sales because of pricing, and you’re less likely to see customers haggling with you over costs. Quite simply, offering financing can help you to grow your business.

Promotional Programs - the difference between PowerPay and other banks
There are several types of promotional loans. PowerPay offers two types. Same as Cash and 12 months and 24 months no payment promotions. First, PowerPay promotional loans are not credit cards. They are unsecured personal installment loans. The main difference between a credit card loan and PowerPay promotion is the interest rate once the promotion is over. In most credit card “teaser” promotions that rate, once the promotion ends, will be in excess of 29%. Our loans, once the promotion ends will be approximately 8.99% for 15 years with no prepayment penalties so customers can pay off whenever they like. We don’t like the credit card promotions because the fees are excessive and we’ve seen too many people get hit with accelerated payments and massive fees. It’s just unfair and most contractors don’t seem to care what the customer pays after they’ve completed their job.
With uncertainty in the economy and financial markets we believe that if a customer wants to use the promotion and then pay it over time, it should be at a fair and reasonable rate. Most contractors and dealers offer “teaser” promotions as a marketing tool but at the end of the day, only consumers will above-average credit qualify. PowerPay offers promotions for customers at many credit levels.
Our same as cash promotions essentially allow the customer to make a purchase and pay off the loan in equal monthly installments similar to how you purchase an iPhone. These programs are offered with the lowest fees in the industry. Ask your sales rep for more information.
