Job Description

​About Us

Sunstone Credit is a financial technology company working to help businesses go solar.

Solar in the United States is an exciting, accelerating industry. In 2021, over half of all new electricity-generating capacity was solar. Homeowners and really large businesses are increasingly installing solar, but we need to make it easier for small and medium sized businesses to do the same.

Sunstone Credit is working to grow this significantly underserved segment in the solar industry by offering financing solutions that democratize access to renewable energy solutions for businesses. With unique capital and proprietary technology, Sunstone provides simple and efficient financing that solar installers use to help businesses acquire and deploy their solar system.

We partner with best-in-class renewable energy developers across the country and help them grow and develop new customers and markets. By providing solar loans to businesses, we help these companies control their energy costs, contribute to meeting climate goals and ensure our entire economy is benefiting from clean, distributed electricity generation.
