Details on new ‘Triple Option Loan’ for rooftop solar projects via EnerBank

EnerBank

National consumer lender that specializes in home improvement loans, EnerBank USA,  announced a new Triple Option Loan for contractors to offer homeowners who are installing solar panels and expect to receive income tax incentives, rebates, and/or other significant payments. The new loan features a 12- or 18-month no-payment period and three re-amortizations of principal and interest over the life of the loan, providing homeowners the ultimate flexibility in choosing how they want to pay for their projects.

How it works

During the 12- or 18-month no-payment period, customers are not required to make payments on the loan. If the entire principal amount is paid off before the expiration of the no-payment period, all accrued interest is waived. After the no-payment period, the loan is re-amortized, followed by two more re-amortization events each May of the following years. This allows homeowners the option to apply rebates, bonuses or tax refunds to reduce the amount of their monthly loan payment.

“The Triple Option Loan gives tremendous flexibility for homeowners to pay off the principal of their loans or to reduce their monthly payments,” said Charlie Knadler, president and CEO of EnerBank. “Because the loan is re-amortized several times, homeowners have an extended period to apply bulk payments to the loan compared to other loan options.”

And, with the new Triple Option Loan, contractors have an additional choice in financing options they can offer their customers, helping them grow their businesses in the process.

“When contractors provide payment options for home improvement projects, they can achieve higher close rates, increase project size and grow their sales,” said Knadler. “Many home improvement contractors have seen sales increases of 30 percent or more. Offering payment options gives their customers more choices and greater spending power to achieve their home improvement dreams.”

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
