Affordability & Financing Options

At Switch to Solar, we’ve saved our neighbors thousands on their solar power installations by helping them identify the most affordable and financially beneficial ways to make the switch to solar.

Affordability & Financing SolarSolar Energy Puts Cash in Your Pocket

Most people understand that they can save money by switching to a home solar energy system. The electricity your solar panels generate replaces the electricity you previously bought from your utility. Our typical customer cuts their utility bill by 50% or more, generating a savings of over $1,000 per year that goes a long way toward offsetting the upfront cost of installing your solar panels.

However, there are other financial benefits of making the switch to solar. It helps to think of home solar power as an investment. You buy it just like you would by a stock, bond or real estate, and during your ownership, it generates cash, ultimately paying back your initial investment and providing a return.

  • On average, solar pays for itself within 8 years. From there, it actually earns you money. In its first 25 years, our typical installation has paid our customers over $32,000 more than it cost.
  • Solar installations are cheaper than they’ve ever been. With generous government incentives you can cut the system cost by a minimum of 30%.
  • Thinking of moving? The installed solar energy system above would increase your home’s value by $20,000.
