Other factors may be reviewed by the financial institution before financing is approved. Below is a list of questions that are commonly asked by financial institutions when reviewing financing applications. Please consider these questions before you choose to pursue participating in the Clean TRIP program.
Answering yes to any these questions may impact your chance of obtaining financing, but ultimately the decision is up to the financing institutions.
