Handypay, OpenSolar partner to offer Australian solar professionals finance options


“OpenSolar was founded on the principle of removing the barriers to global solar adoption,” said Andrew Birch, co-founder and Chief executive officer of OpenSolar, “and the digital design and proposal software we provide, entirely free for solar installers and their customers, is key in achieving that goal.”

“By partnering with Handypay’s multi-award winning payment plan solution, we offer yet another avenue for Australian solar professionals to expand their business and simplify the sales experience for both them and their customers,” he said.

OpenSolar delivers a seamless digital experience allowing customers to explore their solar options through interactive proposals, which calculate their projected costs and savings in real time and allow them to apply for finance and get an instant decision all from their digital solar proposal.

OurMoneyMarket and Handypay founder and CEO at Adam Sutherland said “we know the demand for rooftop solar is on the rise to combat home energy costs, but not everyone can afford to pay for the system they need in full.”

“Our payment plan solution is designed specifically to give solar customers the ability to make the switch to solar without the burden of a hefty upfront cost,” he said. “By integrating with OpenSolar’s class-leading design and proposal technology, we make it even easier for customers to say ‘yes’ to solar all while keeping time and cost low for the installer.”

This latest innovation from OpenSolar and Handypay follows other significant achievements by both companies. In December 2022, OpenSolar announced the completion of its series B fundraise, securing $22 million to expand its software platform and global footprint. Whilst Handypay, and its parent company OurMoneyMarket, recently surpassed more than $260 million in funded home improvement finance solutions – helping thousands of Australians to make their dream home a reality.
