New! Solar Panel Loans
You no longer need to pay all in cash or lease equipment in order to have energy-efficient solar panels on your home. Now, with Meridian Trust’s new Solar Panel Loans, you can harness the free energy being provided by the sun, without paying for the entire cost of a solar energy system upfront.
Meridian Trust offers you low fixed rated loan terms from 10 to 15 years. You can borrow up to as much as $500,000. And a real nice feature: there are no closing costs and no payments need to be made on your solar loan until a full month after installation of your system has been completed.
We offer both an unsecured loan option as well as a HELOC option. See below for more details.
