Florida-based ISPC, a 100-percent employee-owned finance company, has been providing consumer-friendly loans to homeowners since May 3, 1983. To successfully sell solar water heaters to consumers, that budding industry needed financing options. ISPC was formed to meet this need. Originally named The Independent Solar Plan Company, the company name was changed to The Independent Savings Plan Company in 1986 (and later shortened as a dba to just ISPC) to support ISPC’s diversification to other products and services, including residential heating and air conditioning (HVAC), water conditioning/drinking water systems and other home improvement products. Similarly in 2001, Solar City created a dba name, The LeverEdge, to demonstrate its commitment to enter the water treatment industry and made its big move by buying an existing distributor in that industry. ISPC was selected as a semi-finalist for the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious Small Business of the Year Award in 2004, made the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies in 2007 and received the Industry of the Year Award from the Pasco Economic Development Council in 2009 as the company continued to grow and provide consumer financing through an ever-expanding network of select merchants.
