General Questions


What are solar panels used for?
Solar Panels or Photovoltaic panels are a semiconductor technology used to convert the energy emitted by the sun into electricity. This is a process that happens without any emissions of toxic, or greenhouse gases. Please find more information to get you started on https://www.pveducation.org
SolarTrade focuses on emerging countries in SEA where electricity prices are high, sun in abundant & local access to affordable credit is limited. Currently we are only displaying projects in the Philippines but we will soon be expanding to other emerging markets. You can find more information where we are currently operating in how it works
SolarTrade is a fully self-funded early-stage technology company. The current pre-registration approach allows us to validate the interest for our offering and at the same time collect some critical feedback. This feedback is extremely important to reiterate our offering structure and adjust our platform before hosting any solar projects. Read more on our updates here
We democratize global participations in renewable energy projects. With our technology, we offer the possibility for anyone in the world to participate directly in 50 kW to 1MW renewable projects which were until now only accessible to high net worth individuals, banks & institutions and this at just a tap of a finger. While helping out local communities & businesses of emerging markets and reducing the CO2 emissions, SolarTrade only hosts projects that have a financial upside to the lessors (panel owners). Our technology furthermore allows to work in full transparency, providing you insights where your panels are located & how they are performing.
We have a very broad audience such as hard core eco warriors, to technology pioneers to individuals looking for an extra revenue stream with alternative assets. With your purchase, you are helping small businesses & communities to reduce their electricity bills, help reduce the emission of greenhouses gases while generating additional passive income for yourself. Solar leasing projects usually have a lifespan between 7 - 15 years.
Interested, but aren’t sure you will be able to commit long term? With our soon to be implemented trading feature, you will be allowed to sell your solar panels. Therefore providing you the possibility to cash out at any time.
A solar performance leasing agreement is an agreement where the solar equipment is leased to an entity for the sole purpose of generating electricity. The monthly leasing rate is based on the electricity generation of the equipment and a preagreed electricity rate which is lower than the available retail rate. Many entities lack the capital to purchase the solar equipment or even if they have the capital, rather invest in projects that will increase the added value of the organization instead of investing in cost cutting measures. Leasing the installed solar equipment reduces their overall electricity cost without having to deploy their own capital or having to go through an extensive application to secure a loan from an institution or private entity. As such, the entity enjoys savings on their electricity expenses from day 1. To keep risk of default to a minimum, we try to limit the length of the leases to a maximum of 12 year and allow the entity to purchase the equipment at a residual value once the lease expires. Details of the lease conditions can be found in the offer letters. Read carefully before participating.
