Solara is a B2B solar fintech company focused on building software and developing financial products to increase the adoption of solar in emerging markets. Solar and other clean energy technologies are the cheapest form of energy in many emerging markets, but are capital-intensive. The banking and financial sectors have been slow to innovate and haven't introduced products customized to cover the needs of customers in emerging markets. Solara offers software and multiple subscription-based and savings-oriented financial products for installers to pass on to their customers, enabling installers to grow more quickly and customers to save by going solar on terms they're more comfortable with.
