Predictable costs for 20 years.

Little to no investment and immediate savings.

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 water districts 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.
