New 30 year 1.99%, 2.99% and 3.99% Loans Lower Monthly Payments for Homeowners Nationwide

NEW YORK & CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 26, 2022-- Sunlight Financial (“Sunlight,” NYSE: SUNL), a premier, technology-enabled point-of-sale financing company, announced a new suite of 30-year loan products for residential solar. Available at Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) of 1.99%, 2.99%, and 3.99%, Sunlight’s 30-year loans reduce monthly payments for residential solar systems, making solar more affordable and accessible. Hundreds of Sunlight installation partners nationwide now offer Sunlight’s 30-year loans to their customers.

“Sunlight enables a homeowner to finance a residential solar system in the same way they likely financed their home – with a 30-year loan,” said Matt Potere, CEO of Sunlight Financial. “The 30-year mortgage is by far the most popular home loan, which is why Sunlight is excited to be the first company to enable installers nationwide to offer 30-year solar loans. Our latest product enhancement will reduce monthly payments, facilitating homeowners’ transition to clean and affordable renewable energy.”

Sunlight’s digital, end-to-end point-of-sale platform delivers instant credit decisions and automated loan processing and funding, creating a seamless process for the sale of residential solar systems and other home improvements. Through thoughtful risk management, Sunlight has delivered outstanding loan performance and industry-leading credit quality to its diverse set of capital providers. The more than 160,000 solar systems financed through Sunlight’s proprietary technology platform, Orange®, as of December 31, 2021 will produce enough solar energy to avoid the emission of nearly 28 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
