Many of us in Appalachia have come to believe that solar is unattainable for our family. “My credit score isn’t great, I can’t make that kind of investment right now, what if I move in a few years” – the list goes on and on. With solar leasing, we’ve removed those obstacles. Clean energy is within reach of more Appalachians than ever before!
What is Solar Leasing?
When you lease your solar, we install the system on your home; we own and maintain it, while you benefit from the power it produces. You pay a low predictable monthly fee and we guarantee you’ll see an immediate savings on your total energy costs of 15% or more.
Who Qualifies for a Lease?
All homeowners in West Virginia who have a nice sunny spot for solar. Eventually, homeowners in parts of Ohio and Virginia will qualify too.
Do I have the option to buy later?
Yep, sure do! From year 6 and beyond, if you decide you’d rather own the system outright, you can buy it with cash or work with our financing pros on a loan to make it yours forever!
What if I Want to Sell My Home?
We’ve got options for that. Four of them to be exact. From transferring the lease to the new homeowner or paying off the remaining amount and adding it to your selling price, there are several ways to make it work.
Will I Still Have a Utility Bill?
Yes you will. By being connected to the power grid, you’ll always have to pay a connection fee ($12 or less per month). You’ll still have to pay for any power you use from the grid, but overall you’ll be paying at least 15% less than you would without solar!
How is it Different from Purchasing?
The only difference is who owns the system. The same meticulous work goes into building the design, the panels and tech are exactly the same, you’ll have a production guarantee and the same skilled union crews will install your project.
