We almost always recommend buying vs. leasing solar. It’s important that you know the difference. Here are a few key points that demonstrate the advantage of owning. We’ll show you exactly how much more you can save with a purchase over a lease.
- With a purchase you receive the tax credit. With a lease, the leasing company keeps the credit.
- A lease decreases your savings. The whole reason leases exist is because they are wildly profitable to the companies offering them. Buy your system with cash or a loan and you keep all the savings.
- Leases discourage buyers of your home. An owned system is an asset to your home value. A lease is actually a liability! Most buyers know this, and its very common for real estate agents to point this out to their buyers.
- Let us look at any lease proposal you have received and we’ll show you how much more you can save in an easy to understand format with no financing gimmicks.
