We believe that clean solar power should be affordable for everyone. That’s why DS Energy Solutions offers several payment options to fit your financial goals. For instance, you can purchase a system, or go solar for $0 down and save money from day one by financing direct from DS Energy Solutions.

Other solar installers make you work with a third party to finance solar—which adds cost and complexity. No middlemen required with DS Energy Solutions! We take care of you directly every step of the way for the ultimate in accountability.

DS Energy Solutions’s Solar Lease

DS Energy Solutions’s Solar Lease makes it possible for you to switch to clean, solar power for $0 down and a low monthly payment. Your fixed monthly lease payments are typically lower than what you currently pay for electricity, so you can save money every month!

We offer several lease options to fit your financial goals. In addition to our popular $0 down option, you can put some money down and save even more every month. You can also fully prepay the lease so you do not have to worry about any monthly payments.

In addition, all DS Energy Solutions Solar Lease options include our premium service package: proactive monitoring, repair service, all-inclusive system insurance and a performance guarantee for the life of the lease. We’re so confident with our system design and installation that we guarantee our system will perform as promised or we will pay you the difference!

Cash Purchase

The economics of a solar cash purchase have never been better. As of January 2009, the federal tax credit alone covers 30% of the solar system cost, and combined with additional state and utility rebates, your net cost of a solar system can be 50% or more off the retail price!

You own the solar system and its expected useful life is 40+ years. On average, top tier electricity prices have increased about 6% per year for the last 30 years. When you choose solar, you lock in low electricity prices and are no longer dependent on foreign oil or a volatile energy market. As utility rates continue to rise in the future, your investment becomes increasingly valuable.

And with DS Energy Solutions, we are offering $500 off the purchase of a solar system when you pay cash!

Home Equity Loan

Many customers finance their solar electric system using a bank loan for those who qualify. Advantages include attractive home equity loan rates, a single monthly bill, fixed rates for energy prices, a potential tax deduction on interest paid, and ease of working with your existing home lending institution.

Many banks require a maximum loan to value of 80 percent for homes up to $1 million in value or 50 percent loan to value for value over $1 million. They typically require a “Good” or “Excellent” credit rating with a FICO® score above 700. DS Energy Solutions can suggest options that may be available in your area.
