Leasing Solar Power

Leasing Solar Power

Apr 12

Just heard about this from a friend: Leasing solar power. Sungevity, based in Oakland, Calif., will provide installation and maintenance of a home solar power system for no up front cost — all you pay is a monthly lease amount. I have no idea how large an area they service — I think they’re still a rather small company — so I’m not trying to drum up business for them. I just think it’s a great idea!

Lifestyle changes are usually not easy, and alternative energy is high on the list of “can’t do it right now.” Solar panels, natural gas, gray water systems… These are all expensive to purchase and install. Since the government isn’t offering a whole lot of help for these technologies, I think Sungevity’s business model is the way we are going to change as a society.
