Solar Financing FAQ's

What is PowerPay Solar or Battery Loan?

PowerPay is a digital lending platform for the Solar and Battery industry.  We work with solar and battery dealers and installers to provide their customers “homeowners” with fair and reasonable loan options.

Our fully automated technology offers near-instant approvals on loans up to $100,000, helping homeowners translate expensive solar and battery projects into low, fixed monthly fees that can be paid over time.  Unlike other digital lending platforms, PowerPay is a fully independent company that is committed to delivering loans with no hidden fees, credit cards or prepayment penalties in order to offer the lowest monthly payment possible to our customers. After all, the more affordable the loan, the bigger the possibilities for your home.  PowerPay has delivered over $1 Billion in home improvement loans to over 40,000 borrowers in the U.S.

Why should I use PowerPay?

75% of all residential solar projects are financed.  Financing can be a great payment option when your Solar or Battery project costs too much money to pay for all at once. Once you factor in the energy savings of the solar project, using a PowerPay solar loan, you can translate that expensive investment into a low, affordable monthly payment. The result is the opportunity to stop worrying about what a project costs, and spend more time saving the environment and getting off the grid.

Does applying for PowerPay solar loan impact my credit score?

No, it will not affect your credit score.  With your authorization, PowerPay checks your credit using a “soft credit check”. A soft credit check does not impact your credit scores so there is no impact to your credit score to see if you qualify for any PowerPay home improvement loan.

How does Solar Power Work?

A home solar system is made up of components that all work together to convert the power of sunlight into usable energy for your lights, appliances and devices.

1. Solar panels:  Solar panels are made of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight to direct current electricity (DC electricity). As long as the sun ray’s are making contact with your roof, your panels are converting solar radiation into DC electricity. Even when it’s cloudy, you can still expect your panels to produce 10% to 25% of their normal output. But your electricity isn’t ready just yet. You’ll need an inverter to get the kind of power you need to turn the lights on.

2. Inverter: The inverter takes the DC electricity produced by your solar panels and turns it into alternating current electricity (AC electricity). It’s typically installed on an exterior wall of your house, or in the garage.

3. Main electric service panel: Solar electricity from your inverter flows to the electrical panel, and then into to your home where it powers your lights and appliances. If your panels generate more solar energy than you use, the excess power will flow to the utility grid. Even better? You might even earn energy credits from your local utility for the power you send.

4. Third Party meter
Your meter monitors your system production and sends the information to us through a wireless signal. Most newer system tracks your energy production 24/7, it will automatically alert your monitoring service if it detects problems or irregularities.

5. Utility meter: When your system produces more than you need, the excess energy is sold back to your utility and credited to your monthly electric bill. When you need more energy than your solar system can produce, your home will automatically pull the energy from your utility. Your utility meter measures how much energy comes from and goes to the grid.

How do Solar Tax Credits work?

The availability of solar tax credits is dependent on the region you live in and the solar product that you invested in.  The federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax. The 26% tax credit applies as long as the home solar system is installed by December 31, 2022. Starting in 2023, the value of the tax credit will step down to 22%. After 2023, the tax credit for residential solar ends.  State or utility tax incentives vary depending on the region you reside in. To learn more about policies and incentives in your region, check out the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency website.
