Move Capital In Volume, At Scale
Access the Largest Network of Solar Professionals in the U.S.
The CPF Market® connects you with the broadest network of qualified solar professionals in the U.S. Vertically integrated chain models are only as strong as their weakest link. Networks like ours are as strong as their strongest node. Our solar channel members specialize in origination, installation and distribution. Finance products in the CPF Market® are currently available to our channel in nine states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, HI, MA, MD, NJ and NY.

They know our profitability is proportional to putting their money to work.
