How Leasing Works

  • Low, upfront lease offers benefits of solar with little or no upfront costs
  • On low, fixed monthly payment
  • Locks in electricity rates for length of the agreement, typically 20 years
  • Pre-paid lease pays more upfront but has higher utility savings over the life of the agreement

Leasing Advantages

  • Affordability: you don’t have to come up with a large payment for a solar installation.
  • Flexibility: typically, a leasing company will offer different investment options like a low upfront or pre-paid option.
  • Consistency: because your monthly payments are fixed with the low upfront lease, you’ll know exactly what your electricity is going to cost you for the next 20+ years.

Leasing Advantages

  • Savings: The fixed monthly cost for solar power will be less than your traditional utility bill.
  • Maintenance-Free: Since the leasing company will own the solar electric systems, they will manage installation and monitoring.
  • Eco-Friendly: In addition to locking-in your electricity rates, you’ll be using clean energy.
