SPI 15 - Sungage Financial and Enact Systems Partner to Facilitate Easy Access to Residential Solar Loans

Installers in California, Massachusetts and 8 Additional States Gain Access to Market-Leading Solar Loans for Homeowners

Pleasanton, CA & Boston - September 9, 2015 - ENACT Systems, a leading provider of web-based distributed energy sales software and Sungage Financial, a financial solutions provider for the residential solar industry, today announced a partnership to enable installers to have easy access to Sungages financing products through ENACTs distributed energy sales and financing workflow automation platform. The low-interest loans, ranging in term from 5 to 20 years, offer homeowners flexibility and affordability. Under this partnership, Sungage and ENACT are offering an on-line and streamlined application process which allows homeowners to receive credit decisions in minutes.

Visitors to Solar Power International (SPI), held in Anaheim, Calif. (September 14-17), can visit ENACT Systems at booth # 228 to demo its software and this new inte-grated financing solution with Sungage Financial.

Industry experts have noted that as the cost to install solar continues to fall, con-sumers are demanding financial options that support ownership instead of leas-ing. "PPAs (power purchase agreements) and leases are declining in popularity, and loans are rapidly gaining ground among savvy consumers. Credit-union backed loan products with contractor-friendly processes and best-in-class servic-ing teams, like Sungages, are in high demand and we are excited about this partnership", said ENACT Co-Founder and CEO Deep Chakraborty.

ENACTs collaboration with Sungage Financial expands on the companys mis-sion to incorporate best-in-class financing options into its offerings for the distrib-uted energy ecosystem. Using the ENACT web-based platform, installers can reduce operating costs, while accelerating revenue growth, allowing them to scale faster. The platform also enables the ability to reduce soft costs associated with customer acquisition, operations and financing, track and report sales and finance pipelines, as well as improve internal team collaboration.

Sara Ross, Co-Founder and CEO of Sungage said "By using the ENACT plat-form, installers can reduce their costs as well as increase their productivity and sales efficiency. Making installers more profitable and effective in the market-place is core to Sungages mission. We are thrilled to offer our financial products to homeowners through ENACTs installer user base and software as a service platform."

Sungages residential solar loan products are available to ENACT users in Cali-fornia, Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Vermont. Sungage joins 60 other organizations offering products and services on ENACTs web-based workflow automation plat-form. The addition of Sungage as a preferred partner comes on the heels of EN-ACTs recently announced partnership with RapidAdvance to offer the new "Quick Working Capital" solution to distributed energy services contractors using its SaaS platform, such as solar and energy efficiency installers.
