Ex Nurse....Field Technician now helping people build wealth with solar power; indeed (3) sources are available for the solar home owner/ "not one who leases". 1.) Huge "avoided costs" in paying for solar for one's home; massive money. 2.) Many states like N.Y. have Grants or free money to help one with installation, tax credits in the form of State and Federal tax breaks. 3.) Taking the avoided cost of power,...which will increase, and putting that money to work for YOU....you can't do this with leasing....leasing companies do that with "your'" avoided costs though. If you're in upper NYS....call Empire Solar...I'll help you.
