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. The language is as follows:


"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


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 advisor. 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. Breakdown of total system cost


This breakdown should include any incentives the customer will receive, such as national or state incentives.


Customer Contract

Sunlight Financial requires the following items in our partner's customer contract in order to comply with Federal Regulation and ensure customer satisfaction:


1. Financing Information

The Customer Contract should indicate that the customer's system will be financed.

2. Five Year Workmanship Warranty

Roof leak language must be included in the Workmanship Warranty. The roof leak language must guarantee that the installer will fix any damage resulting from penetrations made when installing the system. Please do not include radius restrictions.  

4. Two Pages of Cancellation

Federal Regulation requires that two pages of cancellation be attached to the customer contract. This regulation can be found here.

5. Three Day Right of Rescission Language

Federal Regulation requires that Right of Rescission language be in close proximity to the signature line of the contract. Please note that the language must be 10pt font and in bold. The Federal Regulation can be found here. The language is as follows:

"You, the buyer, may cancel this transaction at any time prior to midnight of the third business day after the date of this transaction. See the attached notice of cancellation form for an explanation of this right."
