The solar entrepreneur can obtain finance for their solar energy projects. In order to obtain an investment through the platform, an applicant must first complete an application, followed by a due diligence process. TRINE then assess the company based on different criteria and uses the data supplied by the applicant to assign a risk grade and interest rate to the listing, which is then posted on the platform.
Each listing includes the risk grade, payback period and interest rate, specific information about the solar energy project and the social and environmental impact plus the previous finalized projects through the platform.
TRINE attracts users through a variety of user acquisition sources (SEM, SEO, PR, Social media marketing, referrals and content marketing). Solar entrepreneurs are attracted through energy access networks and communities, in a later stage by brand visibility in the country and regional offices.
TRINE generates revenue by taking a “Success fee” when the loan is issued and a “CSR fee” for companies that invest in the social impact solar energy project. They are only charged once for each new loan. Crowdinvestors can also decide to pay an opt-in service fee to TRINE. The interest rate on the loan is an on-going revenue stream that is split between TRINE and the crowdinvestors.
