Financing Types

Funding structures that suit your needs

Keep the tax benefits

In a Solar Loan, the host customer owns the solar energy system from the start.  This means the host receives all tax credits and incentives, and the lender receives financing payments.

Offload the tax benefits

In a Solar Lease, the lessor (typically a bank) owns the solar equipment and receives all tax credits and incentives in addition to lease payments from the customer.  These usually have a buyout clause at the end of seven years.

SolRates is a commercial software vendor to solar, ev charger, and energy storage installers. As a value add to our customer base, SolRates also provides commercial finance brokerage services. For projects under $500,000 in California, New York, and Utah; we charge a flat brokerage services fee of $29.00. These services include simplifying the credit application process through a single simple application, introducing and structuring financings between businesses and our preferred lenders based on the specific equipment to be financed, and assisting the ultimate underwriter with application processing. Customer information presented in the Credit Application form will be shared with SolRates' select preferred lenders to generate a specific commercial financing offer to the Customer. Typically, SolRates only submits each Credit Application to the preferred lender that we believe is the best fit, but in the event of a decline, we may submit the Credit Application to our other preferred lender(s).
