Pricing for the purchase of a solar system has now dropped to as little as 1/3 the cost of leasing.

In light of this, we are no longer recommending solar leases or PPAs. In fact, it now costs thousands less to purchase a solar system than it does to even sign a pre-paid lease contract.

Pricing for installed, name brand, grid tie solar systems have now fallen below the $3.20 per watt level before incentives, while pricing for typical
leased systems, still hover around $5.00 to $6.00 per watt.

Factor in the 30% federal tax credit and any applicable cash rebate that you'll have to forfeit, plus the leasing company's annual payment escalator and you can easily find yourself paying up to triple for a leased (rented) system when compared to buying.

In many areas of the U.S., when combining the 30% federal tax credit with available cash rebates, the return on investment on a purchased system can be well under 4 years. In some areas of the country, prices for a purchased system have dropped so low and financial incentives are so high that it is actually possible for a purchased solar system to pay itself off in under 2 years.

In light of today's much lower pricing, in our opinion which is backed by over 16 years of service to the solar industry, a solar lease of any type makes absolutely no sense in today's market.
