Sunlight Financial now offering residential solar loans in Spanish to overcome language barriers

Sunlight Financial announced the addition of Spanish loan products to enhance its technology platform, Orange. More than 15,000 professionals use Sunlight’s technology platform to simplify and streamline the sale and installation of residential solar systems and other home improvements.

“We are thrilled to begin providing loans with Spanish documentation to Spanish-speaking homeowners nationwide,” said Sunlight Financial CEO Matt Potere. “The addition of Spanish-language capabilities to our Orange technology platform will help our solar and home improvement contractors reach a broader group of potential customers to grow their businesses and support the further expansion of solar, specifically, to underserved communities that have had difficulty accessing the market because of language barriers.”

Orange earns a 4.5+ star rating on the App Store. Sunlight’s proprietary technology platform provides a simple, seamless experience, with instant credit decision making and automated loan underwriting, processing and funding. In addition to Spanish-language documentation, other recent enhancements to Orange include:
Self-Service Product Selection – Partner installers can easily select which of Sunlight’s many loan products they prefer to sell in each territory in which they operate, increasing partners’ flexibility and control

  • Auto-Population of Information – When salespeople use the Orange app to scan drivers licenses, homeowners’ information is automatically and conveniently populated in Sunlight-generated forms
  • Tracking of Rewards Status – A robust, detailed Rewards profile provides sales professionals with increased visibility into their Sunlight sales and point tracking so they know how close they are to earning their choice of more than 15,000 prizes
  • Homeowner Access to Loan Information – A one-stop portal updates borrowers on progress toward their solar installation and loan details

“Each Orange update raises the bar for what installers and homeowners expect from their financing partner,” continued Potere. “Sunlight’s new Spanish loan products expand our addressable market and deliver the best possible experience for both our partners and homeowners.”
