How To Finance Residential Solar

 

Cash Purchase

Requires 100% upfront capital investment and O&M costs for 30 years. The organization will be eligible for the 26% Federal ITC, 24.5% State ITC, and MACRS Accelerated Depreciation. The internal rate of return (IRR) on this cash purchase is 32%, and the simple payback will occur in less than 2 years.

Operating Lease

Requires 0% down, with a 10-year lease term at 6.00% interest and a future buyout option. The organization would also be responsible for 30 years of O&M costs but would NOT be eligible for any of the tax credits or other incentives. This system would be cash flow positive from year one.

Bank Loan

Requires 0% down, but the loan is a 7-year term at 5.00% interest and the organization is also responsible for O&M costs for 30 years. The organization will still be eligible for the 26% Federal ITC, 24.5% State ITC, and MACRS Accelerated Depreciation. This system would be cash flow positive from year one.

PPA

requires 0% down, with a 20-year PPA rate with 0% escalator, and the organization will have the option to purchase the system after 20 years (incurring O&M costs for the last 10 years of the 30-year lifespan). This system would be cash flow positive from year one.

Solar Can Be Financed Through a Variety of Mechanisms

PPA

The solar financier raises the necessary Tax Equity and other capital, develops and maintains the project, and charges a pre-set fee per unit of energy ($/kWh).

Operating Lease

Allow for quick ownership of the solar  asset and can provide the Tax Equity  necessary to monetize the tax benefits.

Self-Finance

Companies that have available financing, tax appetite, and the right economic drivers can self-finance a system, sometimes backed with bank debt supported by the system assets. 

Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE)

PACE financing is tied to the property, not the end-user or property owner. Therefore, it’s not reliant on the owner’s creditworthiness.

What Commercial Businesses are Saying About us!

Great people to work with, professional and excellent customer service! Would recommend them to anyone wanted to go solar for home or business.

Jenna Owens

Bear solar was a pleasure to work with on my residential solar panel addition. Bear solar was the only company that provided a professional presentation using software that showed potential energy capture scenarios with different panel types and a no hassle sales pitch. I requested over 10 different bids from other companies. Some companies were pushy while others weren’t prompt. It was a pleasure to see Bear solar be competitive in price and not use spreadsheets in their presentation (spreadsheet formulas can easily be manipulated). I also came away with a quality installation. Please consider bear solar in your solar bids. They are worth your time.

Abdullah N

Very honest and reputable company. Azim, the owner is an engineer by trade so you know you’re going to get a great looking installation, top notch equipment and production from the solar system.

Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Solar 

How many solar panels do I need for my home?

The typical homeowner will need 28 – 34 solar panels to cover 100% of their energy usage. Although, this is dependent on the area required and location.

Is my house a candidate for solar?

The direction, age, and pitch of your roof are all important details when considering whether or not to install solar panels. It’s important to note that a  roof with a pitch of 30 degrees and no obstructions (Example: any skylights and chimneys) is ideal. It is also important to determine if your roof is in a shadow (direction your home is facing & total sun coverage during the day) Contact our team and schedule a free consultation to see if solar is a fit for your home!

What solar incentives and rebates are out there?

Currently, the residential federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax equal to 26% of the final cost of solar energy systems you install on your home. Starting in 2021, the tax credit will step down to 22%. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends.
