Residential Solar System Financing

Florida’s solar financing options for your home

Cash

Paying for solar panels with cash is an upfront expense, however it is ultimately the lowest cost-effective way to purchase and benefit from solar panels. When solar panels are purchased with cash, interest will not accrue.

Solar Loan

Solar loans can also be eligible for rebates and incentives associated with purchasing solar panels—while making payments within the terms of the loan. As with any loan, interest will accrue over the course of the loan.

Purchase

Solar energy systems can be purchased directly. A business loan can be acquired. Solar tax credits, such as the 26% federal tax credit and any other eligible incentives can be retained.

Over time, the solar energy system will pay for itself as power bill savings exceed the cost of the system.
