Owning and Leasing Solar in Philadelphia

Owning or leasing your Philadelphia solar PV system lets you get the most out of it. Your solar panels will produce clean, renewable solar electricity long after you’ve paid them off, and because they require almost no maintenance, you probably won’t even think about them until you’re reminded by your low electric bills.

In Pennsylvania, home solar systems generate Solar Alternative Energy Credits (SAECs) that utility companies buy from system owners, creating a regular stream of cash rebates once systems are installed and registered with the state. Customers who lease instead of owning will see their system’s expected SAECs factored into their monthly payment.

Because solar panels provide inexpensive – and eventually free – electricity, they add value to your home. Studies have even found that homes with solar panels sell faster than comparable homes without, so you don’t even have to plan on staying in your house to make solar PV a worthwhile home improvement project.
