Even if your use does not increase, PG&E bills increase on average about 6% every year.
If you go solar, instead of paying more and more to PG&E, you could be investing this money by purchasing a solar energy system that will increase the value of your home. Or, you could lease a system, eliminate your PG&E bills right away, and pay a similiar size–or even lower–payment for clean, green solar energy.
We’ve heard from many happy solar customers who installed solar energy systems using money they had saved, inherited, or earned through the sale of another property or investment. These customers benefit from a 30% federal tax credit, as well as savings from the expected increase of PG&E costs. Solar, as one investment advisor told us, is probably one of the best investments available in today’s market.
Mendocino Solar Service partners with SunPower to offer solar lease options, with zero money down. We can prepare a lease proposal to show you what you will pay, and what you will save, over the 20 year lease. Lease approval is dependent on credit, so it’s a good idea to find out what your FICO credit score is to help you evaluate your options.
CaliforniaFIRST Property Assessed Clean Energy Financing is another option to consider. PACE financing is not a loan, but instead is paid back through your property tax, so it does not tie up the equity in your home. Other benefits are that PACE does not require money down, approval is not based on credit, and interest rates are fixed.PACE is currently available in Fort Bragg, with the liklihood that it will be available in other areas of the county by the end of spring.
After completing a site visit, Mendocino Solar Service can offer you written proposals of financial options, including leases, PACE and cash down options.
Seed #4: Know your FICO credit score and consider a variety of solar financing options, including solar leases and PACE funding.
