Predictable costs for 20 years.

You can generate clean solar power at a lower cost and protect yourself from rising energy prices.

Immediate savings with little to no upfront costs.

SolarCity’s project financing capabilities make solar power less expensive than electricity from the local power company. Our Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) eliminates solar’s high upfront cost, and the “pay as you go model” makes solar power a viable option for many growers around the country.

100% guaranteed performance.

Our proprietary 24/7 monitoring ensures your system is always up and running and performing as promised. We match each system with a performance guarantee and take care of any necessary repairs for the life of the system. No weather adjustments and no downside risk for underperformance.

Combining storage and PV to further reduce your energy bill.

SolarCity has developed solutions that help agriculture operations reduce their energy costs. Our competitively priced Solar PPA can reduce your standard energy charges compared to what your utility is currently charging you on a per-kilowatt hour basis. Adding battery storage to your solar solution could allow you to run more of your night-time operations on clean energy, including running solar irrigation pumps at the optimal time. Learn More >

How a Solar PPA works.

SolarCity provides a solar consultation that includes a site survey and financial analysis.

You sign a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with SolarCity.

SolarCity designs, installs and connects the solar system to the utility grid at little to no upfront cost to you.

You pay for the power you consume at a rate typically less than that charged by the utility company.

SolarCity continues to monitor and maintain the system while you save on your energy bill.

After 20 years, you can sign a new agreement or the system is removed at no costs.
