5. Roof Subleasing
Solarify has concluded a rental contract with the land and roof owner, which is available to the customer [link to roof utilisation contract]. Based on this contract and the authorisation for sublease contained therein, Solarify rents to the client the space on the aforementioned roof required to operate the purchased panel(s). The customer undertakes to comply with all obligations of Solarify (as main tenant, in accordance with the contract with the roof owner).
Solarify operates the solar panels for its customers and sells the generated electricity to the roof owner and the local electricity supplier. Where possible, Solarify also sells the guarantees of origin for electricity from renewable energies. Solarify maintains separate accounts for each solar installation, records maintenance expenses and establishes provisions for major replacement expenses. Maintenance costs are deducted from the gross return. On a quarterly basis, Solarify pays its customers 80% of the net revenue (gross return from the sale of electricity and guarantee of origin less maintenance expenses and provisions) of their solar panels by bank transfer. 20% of the net revenue remains with Solarify as compensation for its work. A positive maintenance balance at the end of the contract period is shared in the same ratio (80 to 20) between the solar panel owners (customers) and Solarify.
Returns depend on many factors such as solar radiation, temperature and market prices. Solarify does not guarantee a specific return. Customers can view the performance of the solar plant online. The customer acknowledges that for accounting purposes, the output of all panels on the same roof is added together and billed by number of panels.
Solarify will take out an insurance for the panels against damage to property as well as a liability insurance . The (pro rata) insurance premiums are deducted from the gross return as maintenance costs.
8. Non-recurrent remuneration
The customer authorises Solarify to apply for the non-recurrent remuneration under the Energy Act or other government and/or private one-off funding. The application is included in the above purchase price. Upon receipt of the payment, Solarify will forward the full amount to the customer. If the non-recurrent remuneration is lower than expected, the fee will be reduced proportionally.
The customer authorises Solarify to register the panels for further public or private grants or funding measures. Corresponding regular payments are included in the gross revenue according to chapter “6. Operation”.
Solarify may withdraw from the contract within 12 months of payment of the purchase price against reimbursement of the purchase price if there are not enough customers or solar panels sold for a roof project.
