As a for-profit, social and environmental impact company, Trine makes money in two different ways:
- When a loan becomes fully-funded through Trine, the solar company will pay Trine a one-time fee for arranging the loan. This fee is mostly determinate by the size of the loan, used to cover our cost of due diligence and funding the loan.
- Trine also takes a management fee, which is a percentage on the total loan. The solar company pays this throughout the payback period to cover operational costs.
