  • Electricity Usage

    No one can tell you what solar is worth to you until you tell us how much energy you use in kilowatt hours (kWh) / month.

    Your Solar Potential

    How much solar energy can you generate on the property you've got? Solar Payoff website provides state-of-the-art tools to measure your solar potential.

    The Investment Bottom Line

    How much of the energy you use will solar offset and what will the system cost? Taking into account incentives and finance charges, Solar Payoff's website determines the bottom line of this investment.

  • Buy Cash Outright

    With a cash purchase your gains from solar will always surpass the alternatives. Few investments can match the return on solar with so little risk.

    A Loan To Own

    Financing solar with borrowed money lets you keep the available incentives. Like a mortgage, however, the interest charges will significantly reduce your gain, depending on the rate and term.

    Leasing Electrons

    Here, you lease the energy from financial interests who own the solar on your property. You pay little to nothing upfront. You pay a bit less than you would the utility. But, like a loan, you also give up a significant part of the gain.The term of the lease is crucial.
