Accessible Solar for Long Island Homeowners
Solar leasing has gained popularity in recent years as an alternative to buying a solar energy system outright. This approach offers a number of advantages, particularly for those who are concerned about the high initial costs of buying and installing solar panels in Nassau County and Suffolk County.
With solar leasing on Long Island, clients are able to access solar energy without the need for a significant upfront investment. Instead, they pay a fixed monthly fee to lease the solar panels and the energy they produce. This fee is typically lower than the cost of purchasing and installing a solar energy system outright, making it a more affordable option for many people.
