How to calculate

How to calculate the dealer fee into your sales when needed. If you use OpenSolar and you select the correct payment option, it will do this for you automatically. However, if doing it by hand follow this structure:
C = Cash price, F = Finance Price, D = Dealer Fee
C / (1 - D) = F
Always round up to the nearest dollar
For example, on a 5 Year Loan with Humm for a $10,000 system:
10,000 / (1 - 0.1485) = F
10,000 / 0.8515 = 11,743.9812
We put this through on Humm as $11,744
