On a new build, it’s easy to include the cost of solar in the mortgage. But retrofitting solar onto an existing house, and financing it, is also a very viable option. Sun Energy has close relationships with great lending institutions, so if cash is not an option, we can help.

Outright Purchase

When you pay cash for your solar system you have the benefit of owning your system from the beginning. This means that if you sell your house, you’ll get the maximum value from your panels in the resale. With financing, you’d have to transfer the remainder of the loan to the new buyer. But paying cash for your solar system also comes with the added benefit of combating rising energy costs immediately. Your power bill savings increase over time, compounding your savings. You’ll also have no recurring bills; just a much smaller power bill for whatever energy you may need that your panels don’t produce.

Sun, space, and location determine if your home can be updated with solar panels. A solar system needs unobstructed access to sunlight for most or all of the day. The best way to determine if your home is a candidate for solar is to request a solar consultation. You can also use Google’s Project Sunroof to see your solar potential.

The average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. household is 10,694 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year, which is an average of 877 per month. If you multiply that by the California average electricity rate of $0.2226 per kWh, you’ll find that the typical California family has electricity totalling around $2,380 per year. This means that if enough solar panels were installed to cover 100% of your electricity usage, the average Californian household would save $2,380 per year by switching to solar.
