PV industry leader JinkoSolar announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc., will begin providing residential PV financing to consumers through the GreenSky programme in the US.
Installers who buy JinkoSolar’s PV modules can now sign up to use GreenSky’s competitive loan programme and its technology platform, which includes an application to assist installers when its comes to getting homeowners approved in a short amount of time. The programme is immediately available in all 50 US states.
Jeff Juger, director of business development of JinkoSolar (US) Inc., noted: “Our mission aligns nicely with GreenSky's mission. We seek to help our installers grow and delight their customers. Many installers are technically proficient but lack the financing options that appeal to homeowners. This programme will give our installers a competitive edge, as homeowners increasingly look to own their own solar systems. In all, we believe this offer will allow installers to earn more business and homeowners to put solar cost-effectively on their rooftops.”
Jeffrey Gold, senior vice president of account management at GreenSky, added: “As one of the largest home improvement loan programmes in the country, we have worked with some of the largest retailers and name brand manufacturers in the US. We vet our partners carefully and think that JinkoSolar's quality and operations records speak for themselves. We have already financed US$600 million in solar systems and are excited to work with JinkoSolar to make clean electricity more affordable to Americans.”
