OpenSolar, the solar design and sales platform that’s entirely free for solar installers to use, is partnering with Mosaic, one of the biggest names in solar financing, on a platform integration. Now, solar installers can offer their customers highly competitive financing options to purchase solar as part of the sales proposal via OpenSolar’s free tool.
In this setup, solar installers present their customers with solid finance options, enable them to apply for their deal of choice, and get approved without ever leaving the proposal — no other applications and sign-ins.
“At OpenSolar, we recognize that solar installers are on the front lines of the world’s transition to clean energy, and we are determined to provide them with the most accurate, fastest, and streamlined capabilities to convert more leads into closed sales through our free-to-use design and sales platform,” said Andrew Birch, Co-Founder of OpenSolar. “Mosaic has been an industry leader for the past decade with their innovative financing options and equally innovative software app, and I’m excited to partner with them on our shared mission to make solar adoption faster, easier, and more accessible for all.”
“Mosaic easily integrates our financing options into the tools contractors use every day, which helps solar professionals seamlessly access the most competitive financing solutions in the market,” said Billy Parish, Founder and CEO of Mosaic. “Mosaic’s integration with OpenSolar’s end-to-end design and sales platform enables us to service more installers and in turn, more homeowners as they make the switch to clean energy.”
The partnership between OpenSolar and Mosaic follows significant achievements by both companies. In November, OpenSolar announced the findings of independent, third-party assessments that validate the high level of accuracy of its solar design tool. OpenSolar also recently inked partnership deals with IronRidge, a leading solar hardware manufacturer, Sungage Financial, and Greenlancer, a permit design and engineering company.
Mosaic announced in November that it surpassed $6 billion in loans funded. The announcement came just four months after the company surpassed $5 billion in loans and nine months since $4 billion in loans was announced.
Here is our Pitch video with OpenSolar (apologies for the horrible production and my weird hair cut – it was our first attempt!)
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
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.
