6. Choose The Best Purchasing Option For You
There are few options to purchase or lease solar panels in Maryland:
Purchase With Cash/Credit/Traditional Financing
Those who own their solar systems see an average of 50-100% savings on their monthly utility bill. We also offer $0 down financing options to homeowners who wish to own their system, based on creditworthiness. Purchasing a solar panel system in Maryland can also generate income; homeowners can sell their SRECs for hundreds of dollars a year.
Lease or choose our RateGuardian™ PPA to Pay $0
One of the most popular ways to acquire residential solar is to enter into a Power Purchase Agreement or Solar Lease. Pending credit approval, our PPAs and Leases enable homeowners to put down $0 in upfront costs for solar panels and installation. With our Solar PPA, residents pay nothing for solar panels and installations are able to lock in a lower rate than their utility which can lower their utility bill by up to 30%.
