Everyone Can Afford Home Solar Power.

Think of buying home solar like buying a car. You can buy and own the panels or simply pay for the power the home solar power system produces.

Buy The Panels

When you buy the panels outright you get all the benefits of ownership. It’s easy to transfer the panels to a new home owner if you sell the home. If you financed the purchase, the electricity is essentially free after the loan is paid off.

Buy The Electricity

When leasing the panels you don’t own them, you just buy the electricity they produce at locked in rate for 20 years. The leasing company will take care of any maintenance and support issues the life of the system.

Environmental Impact of Your Home Solar System

Over its lifetime, your home solar power system will avoid 162 tons of air pollution. That’s equivalent of:


30
Cars Taken Off the Road


8,693
Trees Planted


16,476
Gallons of Gas Saved
