Financing for Solar Panels
At Penfolds Roofing & Solar, we are dedicated to making a difference; making a difference for our customers and making a difference for our environment. Installing solar power is one way we merge these goals to make a sustainable world for future generations.
We are proud to partner with VCIB’s Solar Installer Program, a program that will give our commercial clients direct access to VCIB’s solar financing team along with financing for solar panels. This partnership will give our clients fast and flexible solar equipment financing tailored to suit each company and project, making it easier for commercial building owners to generate their own solar projects on their properties.
Having access to federal grants for agriculture and the right financing is key to minimizing costly delays. To ensure your project timelines are met, VCIB guarantees a 4-week application turnaround time between the moment the loan application is received to its approval.
