Agreement Will Support Growth for Both Organizations
PROVO, Utah & SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Vivint Solar™, a leader in simple, affordable solar solutions, is partnering with Clean Power Finance to bring more affordable financing options to homeowners interested in clean energy. As a leading provider of residential financing for the solar industry, Clean Power Finance will provide unparalleled support, enabling both organizations to expand into more markets throughout the United States.
The partnership with Clean Power Finance supports Vivint‘s focus on delivering world-class solar solutions while extending the company's ability to offer affordable solar power to more consumers. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, residential installations in the United States grew by 21 percent toward the end of 2011, and analysts and industry experts expect to see continued demand for residential solar in 2012 and beyond.
Customers of Vivint Solar enjoy a variety of cost and energy saving benefits, including free installation, monitoring and maintenance of solar panels. The Clean Power Finance partnership will allow Vivint Solar to expand its existing financing and maintenance options for homeowners, which include the ability to purchase the power generated by the panels for a lower rate than consumers typically pay their utility, and locking in lower monthly electricity rates for 20 years.
Vivint Solar works with the leading solar vendors and is the only solar provider in the nation that can offer experienced, award-winning field and customer service, keeping all functions in-house and never outsourcing.
"This partnership supports Vivint's commitment to provide customers with world-class service," said Tanguy Serra, president of Vivint Solar. "Clean Power Finance's track record in consumer solar financing is unprecedented and it was important to us that their transparent, non-exclusive model supported our brand and business. Collaborations like this will help fuel Vivint's continued success in the growing residential solar market."
