Democratizing access to solar for businesses

About Us

Sunstone Credit is a financial technology company working to help businesses go solar.

Solar in the United States is an exciting, accelerating industry. In the first half of 2021, 56% of all new electricity-generating capacity was solar. Homeowners and really large businesses are increasingly installing solar, but we need to make it easier for small and medium sized businesses to do the same.

Sunstone Credit is working to grow this significantly underserved segment in the solar industry by offering financing solutions that democratize access to renewable energy solutions for businesses. With unique capital and proprietary software, Sunstone provides a simple and efficient loan process that solar installers use to help businesses finance the installation of their solar system.

By partnering with best-in-class renewable energy developers across the country, we help our partners grow and develop new customers and markets. By providing solar loans, we help businesses control their energy costs, contribute to meeting our country’s climate goals and ensure our entire economy is benefiting from clean, distributed electricity generation.
