- Purchase – or companies with available capital expense budgets, this is the easiest and most convenient way to obtain a solar system as there will be no additional paperwork or credit requirements . By purchasing a system, your business will receive the federal and state tax credits and rebates as well as the benefits from accelerated depreciation.
- Traditional Financing – We can arrange financing for your solar purchase either through a third party financier or a line of credit through your current lender. Down payments can be as low as 10% with terms between 2-10 years. Your business will receive the federal and state tax credits and rebates as well as the benefits from accelerated depreciation.
- Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) – With a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), property owners have zero upfront expense and realize positive cash flow from Day 1. With a PPA, a third party purchases the system and agrees to sell the electricity produced by the system to the property owner at a discount to the current utility rate. In addition, the yearly rate escalation is locked in at a rate less than what the utility company typically raises its rates.
- Tax Lease – Under a tax lease, a financial institution will pay for the system and lease it back to you over 10 years, at which time you can purchase the system at FMV (fair market value). This requires Zero money down, and can usually be tailored so that your lease payment is less than the cost of the energy being offset, thus providing positive cash flow from Day 1. Because the financial institution is purchasing the system, it will receive the federal and state tax credits and rebates as well as the benefits from accelerated depreciation.
- Capital Lease – Under a capital lease, a financial institution will finance the cost of the system over 5-7 years, at which time you purchase the system for $1. A 5% down payment is typically required on these leases. The monthly payments may be slightly higher than the cost of the energy being offset, but your business will receive the federal and state tax credits and rebates as well as the benefits from accelerated depreciation.
