Pros & Cons of Solar Leasing vs. Buying

Today, solar power is the top choice for affordable, renewable energy. As solar systems and services have become more advanced and affordable, the choice of leasing versus buying has become more complex, as each option offers pros and cons.

The experts at Solar Liberty break down the advantages of solar leasing and what New York homeowners need to know when choosing between leasing or outright buying their panels.  

What Is Solar Panel Leasing?

Solar panel leasing comprises a long-term contract — typically around 20 to 25 years — that enables a solar provider to install a solar power system in your home without you outright buying the system. See the article : array. You won’t own the unit; instead, you pay monthly installments and annual price escalators in exchange for the energy these panels create.

Most contracts include the option to purchase the system at the end of the term. Some leases charge you for the system itself, while others may depend on the amount of power your system generates. Leasing can be a good option for homeowners looking to avoid the upfront cost of purchasing a solar power system and the responsibility of maintenance and monitoring.

How Solar Leasing Works

At its core, leasing solar panels is like leasing a car; different providers offer different terms in their leasing contracts. To give you an example of solar leasing terms, Solar Liberty’s process includes:
