Considering a Solar PV Lease? You may want to reconsider!
We suggest a purchase for several reasons. You are much better off owning your solar array. When you purchase a system yourself, you can claim the 30% federal tax credit. If you have limited tax liability, this can be carried forward. Additionally, you can claim a rebate from the CT Green Bank. Here is a basic example of a purchase!
To purchase a 7 kW solar PV system (assuming a cost of $3.50/Watt)
So, how do you come up with the money to purchase the system outright? If you have mutual funds or other savings, a solar array will get you a much better return on investment. On average, the ROI for solar is greater than 10%.
If you take out a home equity line of credit, you can get a low interest loan and still save money compared to a lease program. At 2% interest, the purchase with a 15-year term will still cost less than a lease. If you decide to sell your home before the end of the lease, your buyer may not be interested in assuming the lease on top of the mortgage. If you own the system, the price of the array will be bundled into the mortgage and will likely be more appealing to a potential buyer.

The Connecticut Green Bank (formally the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority) released a new rebate program for residential Solar Photovoltaic purchases in 2016.
Current rebates are a maximum of $0.487 per watt for the first 10 kW PTC and $0.40 per watt for the remainder, up to a maximum of 20 kW PTC or 100% of the owners prior 12-months of electricity usage, whichever is lower. Please contact Evergreen as soon as possible if you are interested in a Solar PV System, Solar Thermal, Wind Turbine or a Geothermal system for your home or business.
Zero-Emission Renewable Energy Credits (ZRECs) are now available for all Class I renewable energy systems
which are constructed without incentives from the Clean Energy Finance & Investment Authority. The fee to be paid for ZRECs are based on the system size and will be determined by CL&P and UI on an annual basis.
