Renewable energy is a key component of a sustainable future, and Sunlight Financial is excited to be part of the national movement toward solar. Across the country, more homeowners are switching to solar energy to power their homes. Sunlight Financial partners with contractors nationwide to help them offer financing solutions to their customers, making the switch to solar simple. As a Charlotte-based company, we want to see our local community grow in a sustainable way. North Carolina has shown its commitment to solar power and a sustainable future.

North Carolina residential solar has grown significantly over the past few years. North Carolina is one of the top states in the US for solar with 7,811.2 MW installed as of Q4 2021, according to North Carolina Solar. That’s enough to power 1,009,138 homes! While there are several forces driving this growth, an interest in sustainable energy sources and a desire to drive down energy costs are certainly key elements. North Carolina solar is expected to continue to grow in the coming years and Sunlight Financial is excited to be a part of the switch to solar.

Our company’s impact on the North Carolina community is important to us. Sunlight Financial has grown as a company and we enjoy helping local contractors do the same. As of 2022, we have developed partnerships with 85 North Carolina-based solar contractors. Through these partnerships, our contractor-partners are able to offer flexible, affordable financing solutions to help more homeowners go solar and reduce their carbon footprint. Thus far, more than 3,200 North Carolina solar system installs have been financed with a Sunlight Financial loan and that number increases every day.

Our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop with residential solar financing. One of our core values is passion, and Sunlight teammates are passionate about creating a sustainable future in a variety of ways. We are proud to be certified carbon neutral and enjoy finding ways we can make sustainable changes as a company. We are also proud to be involved in several local organizations committed to making Charlotte a better place to live. Sustainability is multi-faceted and through our commitment to the community and to the environment, we hope to make the future a little brighter here in Charlotte.
