Don't Get Caught In The Zero Down Solar Offer Trap !

 

Zero Down Solar Offer Trap

 

Know The Facts That Will Save You Tens Of Thousands Of Dollars Before Signing That Airtight Solar Lease Or PPA Contract.

 

MYTH: A solar lease makes solar more affordable.

REALITY: Add up your payments on that zero down solar lease or PPA and you'll find that you'll be paying up to triple the cost for a solar system when compared to purchasing a system.

Why do the leasing companies charge you so much more for their systems ? Because their investors get a bigger tax credit when they charge you more for your leased system.


 

MYTH: If you sell your home your solar lease or PPA can easily be transferred to your home buyers.

REALITY: Homeowners and even real estate brokers are now reporting that it has been or may be  more difficult to sell their homes with a solar lease or PPA attached to it. Read More

For one, your homebuyers must qualify to assume your lease with an excellent credit rating. If they can't qualify, then you will be forced to pay off your lease in a lump sum in order to sell your home. You'll have to disclose your solar lease obligation when selling your home. Read More

Second, whowould want to take over let's say 12 years of remaining lease payments on a 20 year lease on outdated 8 year old solar system when you could buy a brand new solar system for tens of thousands less ? Of course you wouldn't. And neither would your potential homebuyer. So you just lost your home sale. Read More


 

MYTH: A solar lease or PPA is your only option if you can't come up with the up front cash to purchase your solar system.

REALITY: Nothing could be further from the truth. Today there are many $0 down options available that have nothing to do with that expensive lease.

For instance there's the FHA Title 1 Zero down solar loan that is far easier to qualify for than a lease or PPA. You only need a 650 credit score, you don't need to have any equity in your home and best of all, you get to keep the 30% federal tax worth thousands of dollars and you'll keep any applicable cash rebates or other tax credits instead of giving them all away to the leasing/PPA company.

Another source for $0 down financing is the new PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) finance programs that are cropping up all over the country that allows you to finance your solar system and pay back the financing through your property tax bill.

 




 

MYTH: You'll have the option to upgrade your system at a later date.

REALITY: Well yes, a much later date. Imagine being forced to drive the same car for 20 YEARS !

Well that's how long you'll have to wait untill you'll be able to upgrade your solar system on a 20 year solar lease or PPA. 

With advancements occuring weekly in the lab, 20 years is an eternity in the solar industry. Imagine your neighbors installing the latest sleekest, high efficiency solar panels on their roofs 10 years from now while you're stuck with the same antique solar panels for another 10 years.

With prices for complete, name brand, installed solar systems at under $3.00 a watt before incentives, paybacks for solar systems have fallen to as little as 3 to 4 years. So when you own your solar system instead of leasing, you could easily sell your older solar equipment and upgrade to the latest technology if you wish.


 

MYTH: We'll install "your" solar system for free !.

REALITY: It's not "your" solar system. In fact after making 20 years worth of lease or PPA payment it still won't be "your" solar system.

After making all those monthly payments or even after prepaying your lease, it won't be "your" solar system until you've purchased it from the leasing company at fair market value. That's the law.


 

MYTH: A solar lease can be a safe and effective way to invest in a solar system.

REALITY: Really ? Read your solar leasing contract under the heading of "Default" before you sign.

One of the largest solar leasing company's in the country makes it quite clear in their contract that if you are more than 10 days late on your lease payment that they have the legal right to remove the solar system, charge you for the removal and then sue you for the balance of the payments that you owe on your lease as well as other fees and penalties.

10 Days Late On Your Solar Lease Payment

When was the last time your utility company removed your electric service and sued you for being just 10 days late on your electric bill ?


 

MYTH: With a solar lease, there are no concerns about ongoing repair and maintenance cost.

REALITY: What maintenance and what repairs. This is one of the solar leasing company's biggest myths in their bag of propaganda tricks.

There is no maintenance involved in the ownership of a modern, properly installed grid tie solar system other than an occasional rinsing off with a garden hose to remove accumulated dust.

And system monitoring, when you purchase your solar system instead of leasing, you'll have the ability to monitor your solar system's performance over the Internet on any smart phone, tablet or computer, right down to the individual solar panel.

Solar System Monioring

You probably won't have that ability with a solar lease or PPA but your solar lease or PPA company will. Talk about the wolf guarding the hen house.  

And the out of warranty inverter replacement that you may need at year 12 to 15 ? Do the math, since you're paying up to 3 times more in leasing payments than you would have paid if you bought your system instead, who do you think is really paying for that inverter ?

Right, how generous of you to pay for the repair of a solar system that doesn't even belong to you.


 

MYTH: With a solar lease, your utility bill savings will grow every year.

REALITY: Again, check your contract. Many solar leasing companies add what's known as a payment "escalator" into their contracts that will increase your monthly solar lease payment by up to 3.9% per year for 20 years.

So if your utility company is ever mandated to lower their rates, you could end up paying more for your electricity than if you never got involved with a solar lease or PPA to begin with. Read More


 

MYTH: Solar systems are too expensive to buy.

REALITY: If this were true then why are so many leasing companies rushing to buy solar systems so that they can turn around and rent them to you ?

 The truth is, solar system prices have dropped to their lowest levels in history. A complete, name brand, grid tie solar kit can be purchased for only $1.66 a watt before incentives. Add in another $1.00 to a $1.30 a watt for installation or save thousands by installing yourself.

There's never been a better time to own a solar system for a much better return on investment than a lease or a PPA.


 

MYTH: The leasing company will be there for you when the lights go out.

REALITY: And if all of the above weren't enough. To add insult to injury, with the weather worsening like it is and power outages on the increase, with a solar lease you probably won't have any backup solar power.

Solar Backup Power

So when the lights go out in your neighborhood, even while the Sun is shining and even though you've made all those leasing payments on all those solar panels on your roof, most leased solar system are designed to turn themselves off, leaving you without power for as long as the power outage lasts.

In fact, in most cases you won't even be allowed to add battery backup power to your leased solar system's inverter. You would have to completely pay off 20 years worth of lease payments, then buy your leased solar system from the leasing company and then and only then would you be allowed to add an emergency power option to your leased solar system.


 

Here's a comment that was recently posted on one of the business rating sites concerning a solar leasing company that serves the U.S. (The name of the leasing company was intentionally deleted)

"We signed a solar lease with xxxxx xxxx. Wish we had done more research (Even though we did do some). Even though it's 0 down and low monthly payments, we didn't realize that our payments will be going up every year. At the end of our lease our payments will be over $300, A MONTH. We hardly ever paid over $300 a month with SCE. Only once or twice a year in the summer. Also, we have been contemplating the possibility of Short selling our house, and are seeing that these solar panels are going to be a HUGE hinderance in doing this. Even if we wanted to do a regular sale, with the housing market prices the way they were, if we could get what we owe on the house, we would have to add another $50,000 to the sale price because of the solar panels. Bottom line....if you can't afford to pay for them or finance them, DON'T LEASE! We are really sorry we did."


The List Goes On And On.....

Before you sign that airtight solar lease or PPA, we suggest that you have your attorney and your accountant read the fine print. When compared to purchasing a solar system, especially as low as prices are today, a solar lease will probably turn out to be one of the worst investments that you'll ever make when compared to buying instead.


NEWS !
