It’s a new year with new opportunities in commercial solar sales. With the extension of the ITC through 2021, commercial solar installers and EPCs have several financing and software tools to help overcome CFO’s objections about solar.


Join Clean Financing and Extensible Energy for an info-packed webinar on how to address the financing and ROI concerns of CFOs through offering the most appropriate financing with the greatest utility tariff savings.

Here’s the webinar lineup and what you’ll learn:

  •  Philippe Hartley, Managing Director of CleanFinancing, will discuss how to present the most appropriate solar financing options, including PACE, PPAs, or leasing, to overcome the CFO’s objections. Regardless of the type of building, ownership, credit, or payback concerns, Hartley will describe the best way to satisfy the CFO and close the sale with the right financing for the right owner. 

  • John Powers, Extensible Energy’s CEO, will show how bundling in load flexibility software with solar can increase project ROI, and IRR. Regardless of the type of financing, Powers will show examples of how load flexibility software can impress CFOs with increased utility tariff savings without the hassle and expense of installing batteries.
