Step 4: Solar Living

Now that you’ve gone solar, here’s what you can expect.

The Basics

Each financing arrangement is different, but below are a few tips to keep in mind regardless if you purchase, lease, or enter into a PPA.

  • Familiarize yourself with your contract
  • Know when your monthly payments are due
  • Confirm your payment options. Can you set up automatic payments to pull directly from your account? Some providers require automatic payments, while others may provide a discount if you select that option.

Sources and tools for understanding financing options. For more information, read the Clean Energy States Alliance’s comprehensive Homeowner’s Guide to Solar Financing to help understand different financing options.
