Create SCF Financial Model

  1. Open the Financial Model editor in HelioScope (either by editing an existing Financial Model, or creating a new one). 
  2. Under the "Financing" section, click the "+" button to add a financial step, and select "Sustainable Capital Finance PPA".

Use SCF Financial Model on Project

When you have a project that you want to quote an SCF PPA, select the Financial Model that has the SCF integration enabled. HelioScope will send the Project details (including the size, price per watt, and other contract terms), and will obtain the PPA rate from the SCF servers. 

Use PPA rate with Customer Proposal

Edit or create a new Proposal to showcase the SCF offering. Use the smart token {ppa_rate} to have the PPA rate show up in the Proposal.
