Does Financing Make Sense For You?

Many customers choose to pay for their solar system with cash, but now there are many financing options available to make solar affordable.

Solar Installers will work with individual homeowners to discuss their specific needs and find the right financing product for your solar installation.

Here are some of the options available to you:

With a $0-down EmpowerLoan offered in partnership with Dividend Solar, homeowners realize the maximum economic benefit of solar ownership as well as a full service offering, including performance and maintenance guarantees.

This Smart-E bundle is for projects that combine solar with other energy efficiency projects for homes.

Other Options

Ask your Solar Installer about other financing options that are available, including solar leases, purchase power agreements (PPA’s) and other solar specific loan options.

In addition to solar-specific loans, customers can access more traditional lending options (e.g. unsecured personal loans, home equity loans) through banks or financial institutions in the state.

The decision about how to finance your solar PV system depends on your particular financial goals. Because everyone’s goals are different, the “right” financing option is different for each person. They all make going solar easy and affordable.
