What problem does The Sun Exchange solve? (or: what human need does it satisfy?) and how exactly does it do so?

Solar energy systems for self-use are increasingly in demand; however, due to a lack of financial products geared toward the unique high CAPEX and long project lifespans of solar energy systems, many businesses and communities are unable to utilise their own working capital to go solar. On the other hand, there are individuals and businesses throughout the world that do want to support the global transition to clean energy and sustainable development, but for various reasons may not be looking to install solar on their own premises.

Through a unique digitised platform, The Sun Exchange solves both these problems by running a shared economy marketplace where individuals around the world can purchase solar cells and lease them to be installed in remotely located solar projects. Individuals leasing their solar cells through The Sun Exchange receive lease rental payments paid in digital currency, enabling nano-scale leasing on a universal scale.

How is the idea monetized? How do the token holders profit?

Through the tiered membership levels associated with holding set amounts of SUNEX tokens, solar cell owners can increase their lease income and gain purchase discounts on future cell purchases. They will also gain priority access to new projects based on their tier level.

Additionally the SUNEX token has been designed to be staked into a Solar Project Insurance Fund (SPIF) to enable SUNEX token holders to play an active role in the solar electrification of the planet by providing generalised, portfolio-level support for all Sun Exchange solar projects. Staking into the SPIF offers returns of up to 20% per annum.
