Partner and Save

Finally, another popular way to finance solar panel cost is with a Power Purchase Agreement, also known as a PPA. In this model, the solar panel system on your roof is owned by another partner, who then provides you with solar power at a lower cost than your utility rates over a 20-year contract.

Like a solar loan, in this leasing model you can realize savings from day one with little or no upfront costs. Much like leasing a car, the benefits over the life of your solar investment will be less than owning the system outright. On the plus side, PPA’s are often easier to qualify for than loans, making them the best option for many customers

Pros: Easy approval, save from day one
Cons: Lower lifetime savings compared to loans

State and Federal Incentives

Aside from the solar industry having positive impacts on our environment and greatly contributing to the independence of our nation’s energy use, the solar industry supplies more jobs than the coal, gas, and oil in the United States! To promote the growth of the solar industry state and federal governments offer solar tax breaks to homeowners to incentivize them to use solar. When you choose to go solar with the PPA, these incentives are what make it possible for our PPA Partners to fund a solar system for your home, giving you cheaper power.   

  • No upfront cost: Most of our homeonwers are able to get started with no money down.
  • Low monthly payments: Enjoy rates up to 50% lower than your local utility*
  • Easy qualification: Find out quickly if you qualify for the system.
  • Locked in savings rate: Enjoy locked in rates for the life of the agreement, protecting yourself against rising utility rates.
  • PPA partner to own, insure and maintain: Hassle free, the system is maintained for the duration of the agreement.
*actual savings rate varies for each home
