Our Performance Guarantee
As a Solar Lease customer, we’ll guarantee in writing how much energy your system will produce each year and, if we fall short
we’ll pay you for the difference. In the far likelier case that your system over-performs, you won't be charged a cent more
Good for Your Wallet (and Our Planet)
Electricity generation accounts for about 40% of carbon emissions in the U.S. Every time you switch on your computer, washing machine, TV, or toaster, there’s a fossil fuel power plant at the other end of the wire messing up our planet.
Powering your home with the sun is a double win. You reduce the amount of electricity drawn off the grid and decrease the carbon emitted into the atmosphere. Both of which will make you breathe easier. Even better? You save money by doing it.
How Solar Works - It's Simple
Affordable. With $0 down and low monthly payments, you’ll bring the power of solar to your house–and save money every month.
Easy. From the no-housecall-required assessment and next-day iQuote, to the expert installation and included maintenance, going solar has never been simpler
Immediate. The average Sungevity Solar Lease customer saves 15% on their electricity costs from day 1. The more electricity rates rise, the more your savings grow.
Full Service. Sungevity provides system monitoring, no-cost repairs, and a performance guarantee. We’ll even insure the system, so there’s no need to add it to your homeowner’s policy.
What happens at the end of my lease?
You have several options:
- Renew your lease with your existing home solar system.
- Sign a new lease and upgrade your home solar system
- Have Sungevity remove your home solar system at no cost to you
- Purchase your home solar system at fair market value
What happens if I move before my lease ends?
You can choose from the following options:
- Assign the lease to the new homeowner
- Prepay remaining lease to the new homeowner
- Prepay remaining lease payments and assign to the new homeowner
- Purchase the Sungevity Solar home system at fair market value
- Prepay remaining lease payments and have Sungevity remove it at no cost to you
What kind of financial profile do I need?
Solar lease customers need a FICO score of 700 or greater.
How many panels do I need?
Sungevity will calculate how many panels you need based on your electricity usage patterns over the past year.
What are the estimated savings by going with a Sungevity Solar Lease?
Savings will vary depending on how much energy you use, where you live and your utility company. A typical customer will save about 15% on electricity in their first year, and the savings will increase every year as grid electricity rates rise. Your iQuote will tell you what savings you can expect based on your historic energy usage and custom-designed home solar system.
How much maintenance is required?
Sungevity solar lease customers receive free maintenance and cleaning, but home solar systems generally require very little maintenance. Spraying them down with water once a year to remove excessive dirt and debris is typically all that is needed.
Will my system increase the value of my home?
Real estate studies have found that, by reducing electricity costs, solar increases a home’s value. According to the Appraisal Journal, for every $1000 saved in annual energy costs, $20,000 is added to the value of the home. Other home improvements, like kitchen and bathroom renovations and decks, are only worth about 75-100% of the cost, making solar 20 times more valuable than other home improvements.
How much paperwork is involved in claiming solar incentives?
Tons. But don’t worry, Sungevity takes of all of the paperwork for you, so you get all of the benefits with none of the headaches.
Why do you need to know my energy consumption over each of the last 12 months?
Utilities typically don’t charge the same price for every unit of energy they sell. In some places, utilities charge more for energy consumed at certain times of day or in certain months of the year. In other places, utilities gives customers a certain allocation of cheap energy, and once you’ve surpassed that allocation, you must pay higher rates for your remaining energy.
Our goal is to give you access to the best savings possible. That means knowing how much expensive energy you have and how much cheap energy. Once we know that, we can design the system that maximizes your savings.
The offer seems too good to be true. What's the catch?
No catch, but we can give you an explanation of how we can offer this great deal:
As part of the American Recovery and Reinvest Act (a.k.a. the Stimulus Package) the government extended its tax credit on renewable energy systems. When you lease a system, about 1/3 of the cost is covered by Uncle Sam, with state governments kicking in another 10-30%. So, we get paid by the incentives in addition to your lease payments, you get low cost energy, and the world gets a cleaner future. Everyone wins - no catches.
