“Even with today’s competitive solar pricing, most people are still unable to afford the up-front, out-of-pocket cost of solar, so increasing access to affordable financing is critical to market growth,” said Jonathan Doochin, Soligent CEO. “Our partnership with Ygrene expands financing and credit access to thousands of installers, dramatically expanding the options that many Americans will have to own affordable, clean energy, starting now.”
