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.
