What we look for

We are a debt provider, and as such are looking for companies that have audited financials and at least 2 years of operational track record. We do not invest equity.

SunFunder can invest in companies and projects using solar in a broad range of applications. These include manufacturers, distributors, developers and EPCs in segments ranging from solar home systems to commercial-scale projects, and broader solar-enabled business models such as agricultural productivity or telecom ESCO projects.

We require you to have Environmental, Social and Governance policies in place – and can help you implement them if you don’t yet – and require residential distributors to have committed to the GOGLA Consumer Protection Code.
