Cloover wants to speed solar adoption by helping installers finance new sales

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Solar panels practically sold themselves in Europe after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sent electricity prices skyrocketing. Now, as prices have begun to fall, solar installers have found themselves spending more on marketing to attract customers.

To Betschart and his co-founders, Peder Broms and Valentin Gönczy, the answer wasn’t just better project-bidding software, but the addition of financing to help small installers provide loans themselves. ‘In one conversation, installers get a real-time underwriting and credit decision,’ Betschart said.

Their startup, Europe-based Cloover, has developed software that ingests customer data to assess not only their ability to repay a loan, but also how much money they spend on energy. In many cases, a monthly payment for solar panels will be less than what someone pays for their electric bill. 

‘But a bank doesn’t really integrate these energy savings into their models,’ Betschart said. ‘Many times, we can enable financing where a normal bank said they cannot do it.’

The company charges installers a transaction fee for each loan they originate, and it also claims a percentage of each loan payment. When Cloover rolls out software later this year to allow homeowners to use their batteries to sell electrons to the grid, it’ll also take a cut.

Cloover will use the funding to hire sales and customer success teams to train installers on how to use financing for energy upgrades, Betschart said. Today, the company is working with about 200 installers, though he added that there are thousands more who might be able to use its service. 

Giving small installers access to financing should help speed the adoption of climate-friendly technologies, Betschart said. 

‘Eighty-five percent of all the renewable energy installations of solar energy storage, heat pumps, energy management systems, and so on, they’re done through local and SMB installers,’ he said. Big companies already have sophisticated platforms to assess customers’ financial capacities, he added. ‘The only way to achieve the energy transition is by offering exactly the same optionality to SMB installers.’
