SolarLease options  
for home

SolarCity's SolarLease®

SolarCity has revolutionized the way energy is delivered to your home by giving you a cleaner, more affordable alternative to your monthly utility bill. Savings grow every year. Historically, utility rates tend to rise every year. With SolarCity, you can lock in low, predictable solar energy rates. You can watch your saving grow for years to come.

Save on monthly electric bills

Solar power costs less than traditional power from the utility company in many markets. By leasing your solar power system, you simply pay by the month. You can start with $0 down and start saving right away. A SolarLease can be a better investment than purchasing a system with cash because you don’t have a big upfront payment. You start saving as soon as you turn on the power.

Premium service package

With our SolarLease, we install your system for free and take care of it for the entire length of our agreement.

System monitoring

We constantly monitor your system's performance to ensure it's running smoothly. If problems do arise, our service crews will be notified and dispatched to get it back online.

Repair service

We own the equipment and take care of all repairs at no added cost.

Insurance coverage

Our all-inclusive coverage includes protection against damage and theft.

Flexible payment options

We offer several payment options to fit your financial goals. You can go solar for as little as $0 down or you can prepay for some of your electricity in advance to lower your ongoing monthly payments. You can also fully prepay your SolarLease so that you do not have any ongoing monthly bills.

Option to upgrade later

At the end of our agreement, you can upgrade your existing solar power system to a new system with the latest solar technology. You can also extend our agreement, or simply have the solar panels removed for free.

If you sell your home, you can transfer the SolarLease to the new owners or buy out the system ahead of time and include the solar panels cost in your home sale price.

How is SolarLease different than SolarPPA?

Our SolarPPA and SolarLease are both great solar financing options. They offer similar financial advantages to the homeowner. The primary difference is that with a lease you pay by the month, and with a PPA you pay per kWh. One of the benefits of the SolarPPA is that you can purchase the system any time after year five. Availability of SolarPPA and SolarLease vary by location based on what your local utility company prefers.

Financing and service options

Financing terms vary by location and are not available in all areas. To find out which plans are available in your area, request a free consultation to discuss our affordable solar financing options.
