Top 5 reasons to lease your solar system
Nowadays, there are lots of roads to solar--from buying to financing to leasing, it can be hard to find the right path for you.
That’s why over 85% of our customers choose a solar lease, eliminating everything that stands between them and the sun. No large upfront payment, no mounds of paperwork, no hidden fees--just pure solar savings you can enjoy from day one.
1. Savings from day one
With a solar lease, you start saving from day one. Plus, because you don’t own the panels, service and maintenance are covered to avoid unexpected costs down the road. Best of all? You’re not waiting for Uncle Sam to give you your tax credit. You’re pocketing savings immediately. When you buy your own system, it can take up to 8-10 years to recoup your investment when you factor in the cost of maintenance and repairs. So why wait when you could start saving today?
2. 20 years of hassle-free maintenance and service
Unlike buying a solar system, Sunrun’s solar lease comes with 20 years of service and support. We also monitor your system to identify any issues before you even notice them. That’s 20 years of service, 24/7. Yeah, we work that hard. And if you’re thinking, Sounds good, but what if I move? Not to worry--we guarantee your system will transfer to the new homeowner.
3. We’re here to stay
As the largest dedicated residential solar provider, we have over 18 years of experience in solar and our future is brighter than ever. We have an A+ BBB rating and customer satisfaction scores on par with Amazon and Zappos. Plus, over 100,000 customers count on us to keep the lights on. And we’re just getting started. That’s why we’ll be here for years to come to ensure people everywhere have access to the lasting benefits of solar energy.
4. Performance guarantee*
Our Performance Guarantee means that no matter what happens, rain or shine, your system is going to produce the energy we said it would. If your system breaks or it rains for a month and your system under-produces, we cut you a check. And here’s the best part--if the sun is working over-time and your system over-produces, you get to keep the additional energy for free.
5. Lasting home improvement
Like getting new windows or buying new appliances, solar panels are a long-term energy efficient upgrade. Unlike the latest iPhone or a car, home solar technology is made to last for over 20 years. We’ll still upgrade your home to the newest solar technology if you decide to renew your solar lease at the end of your agreement.
It’s time to go solar on your own terms. When it comes to savings, service, and peace of mind, solar leasing wins out. But if you’re still interested in buying your own solar system, we can help with that too. Whether you decide to buy or lease your solar system, Sunrun has financing options that put you in control. The best way to start is to get a solar lease and ownership quote today--when you see them side-by-side, you’ll see why a solar lease is the way to go.
