Solar Financing

Helping you close the deal.

Solar finance products dramatically lower the upfront cost of going solar and eliminate the hassle of owning and maintaining a system for consumers. Because most homeowners today prefer to finance solar systems rather than pay for them up front, access to financing is increasingly critical to successfully selling and installing residential solar.

Clean Power Finance® makes financing for distributed solar PV systems available to qualified solar professionals through our CPF Tools® software platform. Finance products are 100% third-party owned and include leases and power purchase agreements (PPAs) that help solar pros win more deals and grow their businesses faster and more profitably than ever.

Clean Power Finance routinely facilitates more than $3 million in distributed solar project financing every day.

Some key benefits of partnering with Clean Power Finance include:

  • Access to multiple finance products through the CPF Market®, which allows solar professionals to tailor sales pitches to individual consumer preferences
  • The ability to manage the entire solar sales process–from proposal to system design to financing–within our automated and streamlined software, CPF Tools
  • A non-exclusive model that allows solar professionals to work with multiple finance providers simultaneously with no exclusivity requirements
  • Unbranded finance products, which allows solar professionals to brand financing and proposals as their own
  • Access to a market of financing options with transparent pricing and the fastest payment terms in the industry
  • A commitment to partner success through our in-depth training and support services

“Clean Power Finance’s track record in consumer solar financing is unprecedented and it was important to us that their transparent, non-exclusive model supported our brand and business.” –Tanguy Serra, President, Vivint Solar

Products


Clean Power Finance offers the following finance products in our marketplace:

Lease

The homeowner leases the solar PV equipment and makes a low monthly payment for the length of the contract term.

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Monthly

The homeowner pays each month for electricity generated by the solar system for the length of the contract term.

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Prepay

This option on a PPA allows the homeowner to pay the total amount of the contract up front, effectively paying for the energy the system will produce over the course of the contract term.
