Here is the break down.
If you have no money you can get a solar system for free.
Then, if you sell your house in less then 10 years you will pay twice for your energy. The person buying your house has to take over the lease and can only take over the lease if they have perfect credit.
If you buy a solar system. I becomes a adder for your home and is typically worth twice what you paid for it when you sell your house.
How do we know that? We have had two of our clients sell their home and they MADE MONEY! They were very happy!
If you live in your house till you die then, a lease deal might work out, but all of the companies that are leasing are still losing money… so who knows what will happen if they go under and the banks own the solar system.
May the leaser beware!
