OpenSolar and Plenti cast 0% interest finance for Australian solar customers

Louis Edwards, Head of Renewable Energy Finance at Plenti

OpenSolar Pty Ltd., a software firm focused on empowering solar installers with the most accurate and entirely free solar design and sales platform, and Plenti, a provider of renewable energy loans, announced an improved version of their platform integration deal that builds on their shared mission to make solar accessible to more people as quickly as possible.

What is the market offering of the improved integration?

The two companies have introduced their latest product offering to enable solar installers to convert even more leads to sales. Available now, Australian solar installers can offer Plenti zero-interest payment plans directly in the proposals they send to their customers.

All in one proposal, clients can now accurately visualise their homes with solar, together with finance options that allow them to pay in up to 72 equal regular payments with 0% interest. Solar installers benefit by providing an effortless purchasing experience for their customers, including automatic conditional approvals within 2 minutes of the customer’s application.

Solar professionals on OpenSolar can go to the website to learn more about this feature, activate it on their accounts and start offering zero-interest finance to their customers right away. This latest innovation from OpenSolar and Plenti follows significant achievements by both companies. In November 2021, OpenSolar announced the findings of independent, third-party assessments that validate the unmatched accuracy of its solar design tool.

What were the executives’ thoughts on the deal?

“At OpenSolar, we enable Aussie solar installers to present super compelling solar proposals to their customers with cutting edge accuracy. What’s great about this latest innovation from Plenti is that the clients can see really flexible finance options that can get approved on the spot, getting more solar out there in less time,” said Maaike Gobel, Head of Partnerships.

“As we continue on our mission to build Australia’s best lender, our goal is to provide the very best in flexible payment terms for clients. This integration with OpenSolar means that solar installers can increase their sales conversion whilst also being able to rely on timely income for their growing businesses,” said Louis Edwards, Head of Renewable Energy Finance.

Since its launch in 2019, OpenSolar’s free-to-use design and sales platform has enabled solar installers in 120 countries to convert more prospects into booked sales, while saving time and eliminating the costly licensing fees attached to other solar design and sales platforms.

Plenti recently announced interest free finance, designed to help more Australians realise the benefits of installing residential renewable energy tech such as solar panels and batteries.
