You’re Paying Monthly for Your Electricity One Way or Another!
Why not make an investment in solar that will continue to pay for itself?
Many people don’t like the idea of financing anything. In many cases, that makes good financial sense. However, when it comes to paying for your electricity, consider the following: You are making a monthly payment anyway, in the form of an electric bill, aren’t you? That bill is going to continue to increase every year for the rest of your life 4-8% - that’s a given. But if you choose to go solar, you get rid of part (or all) of your electric bill and replace it with an investment in your own solar array. And, that investment won’t go up every year – it’s fixed.
You will save tens of thousands of dollars through the warranty period. So, consider going solar and don’t be afraid to switch your monthly electricity payment to an investment in a solar array you will own outright. Think of it as an investment in your family or business!
There Are Options Designed to Fit Any Situation
Going solar is less expensive than continuing to pay for higher and higher electric bills. Homeowners can pay for a solar solution outright, finance it through a home equity line of credit, or your 401k/retirement program (if they allow it). You can use your personal financial institution or one of the organizations that Michigan Solar Solutions has partnered with. Commercial and Agricultural customers can use the PACE program and may qualify for USDA REAP Grants.
