aleo solar GmbH, Prenzlau 09-05-2017 – According to GTM Research, Q4 2016 saw direct sales take more than 50% of the US residential market, to the detriment of third party financing, marking a fundamental shift. This dynamic has been supported by the development of a wide range of loans options accessible to homeowners to help them take ownership when going solar.

Since then, Sungage has focused on developing consumer-friendly, low-cost financing options that make it easy for homeowners to go solar and reap all the financial benefits of solar energy. Sungage’s online tools give its installer partners the ability to create custom quotes and expedite the loan signing process, avoiding going back and forth to banks.
