Sales Proposal

Sunlight requires the following in our partner's proposals to ensure that customers receive fair sales practices and understand the structure of Sunlight Financial's loan product.


1. Regulation-Z Disclosure


This disclosure is designed for the customer to understand the structure of Sunlight Financial's loan products. The disclosure should be in the same font as any body language. Please choose from one of the options below and incorporate into your sales proposal.


Preferred Option (Dynamic):

No down payment required. The fixed Annual Percentage Rate for a YY year loan is X.XX%. The amount of your first 17 payments will be $DDD.DD. If no prepayment is made, the remaining RRR payments will be $ZZZ.ZZ.


Alternative Option (Static):

The first monthly payment on the loan is due approximately 60 days after installation.  The calculation of the monthly payments for the first 18 months following installation (which includes the first 17 payments) (the “Initial Period”) assumes that you will pay down the loan during the Initial Period by 30%.  If you make aggregate principal payments in such amount during the Initial Period, your monthly payments following the Initial Period will remain the same as during the Initial Period.  If during the Initial Period you elect to pay principal in an amount that is less than 30% of your loan amount, your monthly payment beginning upon conclusion of the Initial Period and throughout the rest of the term of the Loan will be increased to amortize the full principal loan balance (which would be greater than the originally assumed amount) over a period which is effectively 18 months shorter. Conversely, if you pay down greater than 30% of the principal balance during the Initial Period, your monthly payments following the conclusion of the Initial Period will be reduced to reflect the payment of a lesser principal balance than originally assumed for the balance of the term.  Please carefully review the details of your loan, including the payment amounts, provided in your loan agreement.


2. Tax Disclosure


Tax credits are an estimated amount. As the purchaser and owner of a solar photovoltaic system, you may qualify for certain federal, state, local or other rebates, tax credits or incentives (collectively, "Incentives"). If you have any questions as to whether and when you qualify for any Incentives and the amount of such Incentives, please consult and discuss with your personal tax or financial adviser. Sunlight and [Insert Installer] make no representation, warranty or guaranty as to the availability or amount of such incentives. 


3. Maximum utility rate escalator of 4%


Sunlight requires this escalator maximum in order to avoid over-promising customers on future savings. The figure is based on thorough research of historical escalator trends. If your company believes there is sound evidence around higher escalator rates in your geographic area, please share with your Business Development contact.


4. No Cash Discounts


Sunlight does not allow for Cash Discounts to be presented against financing options that do not hold the same discount. This is in compliance with Federal Law.


Customer Contract

Sunlight Financial requires our partners to hold at least a 5-year workmanship warranty that includes reference to roof leaks. Please see example language below if you do not currently carry a warranty that fits this description. 

1. Five Year Workmanship Warranty -- sample language below

"Installer X" warrants that the system will be constructed and installed in a good workmanship manner according to the standards of care and diligence generally practices by solar engineering, construction, and installation companies when installing residential photovoltaic solar power systems of a similar size and type as the System in the geographic region where your Property is located, and pursuant to (i) good engineering design practices, (ii) manufacturer's instructions, (iii) applicable law (including local codes and standards), (iv) required governmental approvals and permits, and (v) applicable requirements of the local utility. This 5-year Limited Workmanship and Installation Warranty will extend for a period of five (5) years from the date of the installation of the System. 


2. Five Year Workmanship Warranty -- sample language below

"Installer X" warrants you roof against damage and water infiltration at each roofing penetration made in connection with the installation of the system for a period of five (5) years from the installation of the system. "Installer X" will repair damage to your roof and repair or compensate you for actual physical damage to your property resulting from any water infiltration.
