What Solar Financing Options Are Available in NJ?

Going solar can cost tens of thousands of dollars – not a lot of homeowners in NJ can afford to pay in cash up front. Purchasing a solar system can cost an average about $30,000. There are, however, solar financing options available to make solar energy more affordable and accessible for homeowners in NJ.

Solar Loans

Over the last few years, solar energy companies and financial institutions have started offering solar loans to give buyers an easy payment plan over a fixed term. Solar loans allow customers to avoid steep upfront payments, get fast approval, and lock in low-interest rates. Solar loans generally give the borrower immediate ownership of the panels, meaning they can benefit from the solar tax credit (ITC), rebates like NJ’s Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECS), and lower energy costs as soon as the panels are up and running.

Green Power Energy offers a few different solar loan options for customers looking to spread out the cost of solar purchasing and installation. The great part about the solar loan is even though you are making payments, you are cash flow positive because of the energy savings, tax credit, and incentives.

Solar Lеаѕеѕ and PPAѕ

Solar lеаѕеѕ аnd power рurсhаѕе agreements (PPAѕ) аrе grеаt ways tо gеt a ѕоlаr system іnѕtаllеd аnd save money on your еlесtrісіtу bіll without dеаlіng wіth those expensive uрfrоnt costs.

Sоlаr Lеаѕеѕ аnd ѕоlаr PPAѕ аrе similar іn many rеѕресtѕ. In bоth саѕеѕ, you shouldn’t have tо pay muсh upfront for installation.
