Selling Solar Water Heating Systems through Murabaha Contract

We are a charitable organization that encourages people to use solar water heating systems through establishing a fund that gives loans to that end. This goes as follows: A provider of solar water heating systems is selected through a tender, an installing order is issued by the organization and the customer is required to pay the price of that commodity to the organization in installments where he pays the agreed upon amount in addition to a specific sum, as margin of profit in favor of the organization. What is the ruling of Sharia on this?
