Lease a Solar System From SolarCity! GreenAZ November 2008

 November 2008


Tempe-based solar panel manufacturer, First Solar Inc., is teaming up with residential-installation company, SolarCity,  and in the next five years will be producing solar panels for 25,000 homes. 

SolarCity is offering a 15-year "no money down" lease program.  Also being offered is a low, $1000 down payment lease program that, in most cases, would make your combined electric and lease payments lower than your current electric bill.

To get an estimate of how much money you will save by leasing a Solar System from SolarCity, please visit the SolarCity calculator and simply enter your zip code and average monthly electric bill: SolarCity Calculator

Recycle Your CFL Bulbs at Home Depot

If you use CFL bulbs it's important to know that, similar to fluorescent bulbs, CFL bulbs contain mercury and become toxic when incinerated or disposed of in a landfill.  The good news is that all Home Depot locations are now recycling CFL bulbs!

These are leases for residential homes...does it pay to lease or would purchase be a better way to go..also, do they make HOA friendly solar panels?

Hi Patrick - It sounds like there are quite a few in your area taking advantage of solar power. Any idea how much savings are realized over a year?

 Thanks for the info!!  It is quite silly of us to pay SRP and APS when Free energy is beating us in the head every day!


I am going to look into this.


Take Care,
