OpenSolar, Inc., a solar SaaS company keenly focused on empowering solar installers with the world’s most accurate and entirely free solar design and sales platform, and Sungage Financial, the nation’s most customer-friendly solar financing company, announced a new partnership that dramatically streamlines the workflow process for the U.S. installer market. With the integration of Sungage’s finance options on OpenSolar’s platform, solar installers can quickly generate complete proposals, including the industry’s most accurate 3D designs, state-of-the-art hardware, on-demand customized permitting, and now financing, with absolute confidence they are providing their customers with the lowest possible monthly payment to fit their energy needs.
Launched by solar technology innovators, Andrew Birch and Adam Pryor in 2019, OpenSolar is now utilized by thousands of installers in 100 countries across five continents and is recognized for the unprecedented value it delivers to the global installer market with its entirely free, user-friendly platform. The company’s new partnership with Sungage Financial marks its second U.S.-based partnership of 2021, adding to the company’s ever-growing list of global best-in-class partners covering the full spectrum of innovative solar hardware, software, and financing companies. In June, OpenSolar announced a partnership with Greenlancer that provides solar installers the ability to get standardized, quality permit design and engineering solutions with speed, scale, and reliability.
“For over a decade, Sungage Financial has been a leader in the solar finance space, offering unmatched customer service and attention to detail. The integration of Sungage’s financing options on OpenSolar’s design and sales platform fuels our mission to scale solar adoption by providing installers with free, end-to-end, enterprise software that significantly streamlines workflow processes, saving them time and money.”
