Closing commercial solar opportunities is easier and faster thanks to new OpenSolar and Energy Ease partnership
SYDNEY, NSW, March 2, 2021 - A new partnership between Energy Ease and OpenSolar will make it easier for solar installers to close commercial opportunities. From today, commercial payment plan provider Energy Ease will have its products integrated into OpenSolar’s software platform. It marks first time installers can include a commercial financing option within their proposals. It enables installers to move from proposal to payment plan approval within the one platform. In a few simple clicks, the payment plan is integrated as part of one proposal. The customer can also click through to sign the payment plan agreements – all without having to navigate multiple platforms. Energy Ease provides payment plans that can be structured either as a loan or rental agreement and can approve up to $150k without the customer needing to provide financials – all in under 5 minutes.
The integration with OpenSolar will also support installers in converting more business by offering ‘no upfront payment’ solutions for energy efficient equipment. “Many businesses and organisations don’t realise that getting solar equipment on a payment plan can be a cash flow positive proposition immediately,” said Guy Olian, CEO of Energy Ease. “Once a solar system is installed, the grid-sourced electricity bill drops significantly. Even when you add the monthly solar equipment payments, the overall cost is often less than the business’s current grid-sourced energy bill.”
“Now installers can easily show this in their proposals because OpenSolar’s platform brings this information all together in one place. It saves time because they don’t need to patch together a commercial financing option from an external portal, as has been the case until now. “We’re excited to announce our first financing integration for commercial systems in Australia and New Zealand,” said Maaike Gobel, Head of Partnerships at OpenSolar. “Selling commercial solar on OpenSolar will get even easier since the latest rates will automatically be pulled into proposals, showing the end-customer multiple term options to choose from. The customer will be able to apply for a payment plan straight from their MyEnergy proposal. No need for them to go find another email or even switch tabs - it’s a seamless sales experience.”
“Energy Ease is an excellent partner with their fully online application system which makes the entire process – from the system design, to the customer quotation, to payment plan application to approval, installation and then getting paid – all super smooth and easy!” “We are thrilled to be part of OpenSolar’s comprehensive platform and for its potential to support commercial Australia’s transition to cleaner energy and technologies.” Guy Olian added.
Energy Ease is a leading payment option provider for some of Australasia’s largest energy equipment suppliers and installers.
We’re also the go-to payment option partner for some of the country’s biggest names in energy efficient equipment. Thanks to our unique online payment plans system, equipment sellers have the tools they need to help clients get ahead – faster.
