Opportunity

Romana Primus, the President of the car dealership stated “with no money-down financing through Greenworks Lending, going solar made economic sense for us. Greenworks has proven itself as a great partner in navigating the application process and providing financing. We look forward to decades of solar production financed through C-PACE.”
