You know it’s time to drastically cut your electricity bill by installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on your home, but you aren’t sure how to go about it.

The answer: It’s easy with Bonterra Solar. There are so many simple options for financing a new solar system that you’ll wonder why you waited so long to do it, according to Andrew Yani, founder and principal of one of Hawaii’s fastest growing solar companies, Bonterra Solar.

“Some people assume that having a state-of-the-art solar energy system in their home is complicated and costly,” Yani said. “In reality, it’s the easiest and most cost-effective way to improve your home, help the environment and save you money.”


Yani said Bonterra makes the process easy by offering several purchase or leasing options, including getting a “Clean Energy Loan” from American Savings Bank, which works with Bonterra to make solar purchases fast and worry-free.

Zero-interest loans

American Savings offers zero-interest, six, 12 and 18-month “Clean Energy Loans” for Bonterra’s solar customers.

The process is simple: The owner of a home or condo signs a contract with Bonterra and then applies for their choice of loans with American Savings, either in person, online or by phone. There is quick approval of green loans, sometimes with immediate conditional approval. Bonterra then schedules the installation and usually within two weeks, your new clean, green solar PV system is up and running.

As a bonus, Bonterra customers make no loan payments for six months.


“We’ve had many customers who, after going through the financing and installation process, told us how effortless it was and how they wished they had done it sooner,” Yani said.

Visit “open houses” to learn more

Bonterra also holds “open houses” at American Savings branches, where the company’s consultants are available to talk to homeowners about reducing electricity bills, their solar energy needs and financing. If you are interested in learning more, stop by the company’s open house at American Savings Bank in Hawaii Kai on Aug. 31.

“We enjoy meeting potential solar users out in the community and letting them know just how easy it is to enjoy energy savings, benefiting both their wallets and the environment,” Yani said.
