NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KBRA assigns preliminary ratings to three categories of banknotes issued by GoodLeap Sustainable Home Solutions Trust 2022-4 (“GOOD 2022-4”), an asset-backed securitization secured by a pool of consumer solar loans and home improvement loans.

The collateral pool consists of approximately $390.2 million in sustainable home improvement loans. As of the statistical cut-off date of September 22, 2022, solar loans and home efficiency loans represent 99.6% and 0.4% of the collateral pool respectively. Preliminary ratings reflect initial credit enhancement levels ranging from 24.08% for Class A Notes to 13.96% for Class C Notes.

GoodLeap, LLC (formerly Loanpal, LLC) (“GoodLeap” or the “Company”) was incorporated in California in 2003 to provide residential mortgage loans. In December 2017, GoodLeap launched its current solar loan origination platform, where it provides loans to mostly prime homeowners to purchase home improvements, including solar panel systems and batteries. In 2021, GoodLeap expanded its product offering to include Home Efficiency Loans.

KBRA applied its general global rating methodology for asset-backed securities as well as its global ABS rating methodology for consumer loans, its global structured finance counterparty methodology and its global ESG rating methodology. Applying the methodologies, KBRA analyzed data from GoodLeap’s portfolio pool, underlying collateral pool and proposed capital structure under stressed cash flow assumptions. KBRA reviewed its operational review of GoodLeap, as well as periodic update calls with the company. Operational agreements and legal opinions will be reviewed prior to closing.
