Purchasing a solar system is a cost-effective & rewarding option, whether you have the ability to pay in full upfront or through a personal or home equity line of credit.
Solar loans allow homeowners to own the solar system, & pay for it over time. We help you find the right lender & a competitive rate through our network of partners.
Many homeowners prefer to lease the solar equipment. Our partners can connect you with a lease provider who owns, installs, & maintains the system for you.
A solar Power Purchase Agreement (or PPA) is a contract to buy solar power based on a set rate for the electricity the solar system produces. Similar to a lease, with a Power Purchase Agreement, a finance partner owns, installs, & maintains the solar panels on your roof. Unlike a lease, you pay for the solar power you produce.
