SunDollars Referral Program Agreement

                This SunDollars Referral Program Agreement (“Agreement”) is between OneRoof Energy, Inc. (“ORE”), a Delaware corporation at 4445 Eastgate Mall, Suite 240, San Diego, CA 92121 and you (“Referral Source”, together with ORE, the “Parties”), for certain referral fees in connection with residential solar systems.


                Referral Source may be in contact with residential homeowners with an interest in residential solar products. ORE is in the business of financing residential solar systems through its financial products. ORE has agreed to offer certain referral fees to the Referral Source in exchange for qualified residential solar system leads.

                In consideration of the foregoing, and for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

               “Lead” means all of the following information of the owner of a Residence who has expressed an interest to the Referral Source in learning more about the installation of a System at such Residence: the full name, phone number, email address, and the street address of such Residence.
               “Qualified Jurisdiction” means certain zip codes within states in which ORE offers residential solar financing products (currently, California, Massachusetts and New York) which shall be communicated to the Referral Source from time to time; provided that ORE reserves the right to amend the Qualified Jurisdiction without prior notice to the Referral Source.

               (b)   ORE shall contact the Homeowner to set up an in-person meeting (the “Site Visit”). Subject to the Homeowner’s cooperation, ORE, through its representative shall determine if (i) the Homeowner’s Residence is a single-family, owner-occupied residence, (ii) based on the estimated average monthly electric energy usage provided by the Homeowner as evidenced by recent electric utility bills, the estimated average monthly electric utility bill for such Residence is not less than $125.00, (iii) the Homeowner satisfies ORE’s credit requirements as determined by it in its sole and absolute discretion, and (iv) a System can be installed on the Homeowner’s Residence in accordance with the applicable requirements and guidelines (including those of ORE and/or its installers) in effect from time to time. If a Site Visit occurs and clauses (i) and (iv) are determined to be true, the applicable Lead will be a “Qualified Lead”. ORE shall notify Referral Source if a Lead does or does not constitute a Qualified Lead within 10 calendar days (the “Qualified Lead Notice”).
               (c)   ORE shall pay the Referral Source up to $550.00 in the aggregate for each Qualified Lead, dependent upon which Tier (as defined below) the Referral Source belongs to, and subject to the payment milestones (the “Payment Milestones”) below. If Referral Source has previously provided to ORE between 1 and 3 Qualified Leads, he or she shall belong to Tier 1 (“Tier 1”) and if Referral Source has previously provided 4 or more Qualified Leads, he or she shall belong to Tier 2 (“Tier 2”).
