CleanFund, a nationwide direct provider of Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing, will unveil its new SolarPACE Partner Program as well as a host of new tools, resources and partnerships designed to foster growth in the commercial solar industry at Intersolar North America next month.
CleanFund’s flexible financing platform for commercial solar and solar-plus-storage projects, SolarPACE, enables property and business owners to save money, regardless of their ability to utilize all available solar tax benefits. SolarPACE can be used to finance projects with either a direct-ownership structure or a PACE Power Purchase Agreement. As SolarPACE financing is assessed on the property, if and when a property is sold, the financing can transfer automatically to the new property owner without the cumbersome restrictions related to typical bank financing or PPA agreements.
At Intersolar, CleanFund will launch the SolarPACE Partner Program to provide additional levels of support for commercial project developers. The program is designed to equip CleanFund’s solar partners with tools and resources to quote, present and manage SolarPACE projects, enabling partners to offer more appealing financing options to their clients and close more sales. These resources include financing proposals and content that can be shared directly with property owners, as well as the CleanFund SolarPACE sales kit and training materials that make it easy to communicate the value of C-PACE financing. The Partner Program will also introduce attractive incentive offerings for deal flow generation.
SolarPACE Partners will also have access to CleanQuote, an online platform that allows partners and direct owners to get indicative pricing and complete financing applications. CleanQuote is a fast and easy tool for indicative pricing, but if solar developers want to dive deeper into project economics, they can request a download of CleanFund’s SolarPACE Calculator.
CleanFund has fostered a number of upstream partnerships that provide valuable benefits to both commercial solar project developers and end customers. CleanFund is now partnering with SunPower to offer SolarPACE to SunPower’s nationwide Dealer Network. SunPower Dealers will have easy access to CleanFund’s appealing financing, along with direct sales and project support. To streamline quoting and project design across platforms, CleanFund also recently announced an integration option for Energy Toolbase platform users. These new partnerships, along with previously announced arrangements with JinkoSolar and Soligent, demonstrates CleanFund’s commitment to driving growth in the C&I solar industry.
