Solar energy system installer, American Solar, announces its newest resource guide for Arizona homeowners titled “Solar Energy: How to Invest in Solar & Boost Long-Term Savings.” The third in a four-part series, this document continues the company’s educational series on residential solar power.
The guide highlights three different ways homeowners can purchase a solar energy system. The investment options include direct purchase, low upfront lease and prepaid lease scenarios for the same sample system. With each option, the guide identifies advantages and compares the 20-year savings to the initial out-of-pocket costs. Additional information includes:
- The package description, including major components and services, along with pricing for a sample 7.92 kilowatt solar system.
- A comparison of the initial cash outlay amount and the initial system cost after tax credits.
- The 20-year cumulative cost and the 20-year cumulative savings for the direct purchase, low upfront lease and prepaid lease investment options.
“Each solar system purchasing scenario offers unique advantages,” said Sean Seitz, president of American Solar. “The best investment option for homeowners will depend on their special circumstances and requirements. For many homeowners, solar energy represents a smart financial choice regardless of whether the system is purchased or leased.”
