Buy a home solar system in California from Ameresco and S-Energy, and you could enjoy annual energy savings of up to 90%, along with potential income tax credits, utility rebates and an improved home value.
Many companies offer the ability to lease a home solar system, but when you do the math, buying residential solar makes much more sense. If you lease solar panels, you miss out on tax breaks and utility rebates for homeowners, and you'll lose those energy benefits when the lease ends and the provider takes the solar panels away.
When you buy your residential solar system, you make an investment in the future value and desirability of your home. Financing is availble with 0% down for qualifying homeowners*, which means there's no up-front costs, payments are simple to make and most homeowners will receive monthly utility savings even with a fully financed system. Why lease when you can buy? Do the math, and you'll see that buying a solar system for your home provides the best value today and over your home's lifetime.
