From not knowing to knowing
Most solar installers narrow your decision to one choice and often that choice isn’t the best one for the consumer. Solar On Earth made it its mission to offer a full range of solar solutions. At Solar On Earth we pride ourselves on educating our customers and to identifying the option that best fit their needs.
- A solar power system purchase (often with special solar lending programs): This option offers by far the greatest utility cost savings. In many cases, the buyer garners more money in monthly incentives and savings than even a short-term loan payment would cost. In Massachusetts, some buyers can even qualify for special loan terms through the Mass Solar Loan program.
- A solar power-purchase agreement (PPA): This is where an investor buys the system for your property and offers the power generated back to you at a discount to standard utility rates. In this case you pay the investor for each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of energy that the solar power system produces, typically over a period of 20 years.
- A solar lease: This is similar to a PPA but the monthly solar lease bill is “flattened” to reflect the expected total annual billing averaged evenly over each 12 month billing cycle. This is great for people on tight budgets who want to know exactly what their bill will be each month.
