Credit Union Loan
Credit Union Loans are more traditional loans, requiring a credit check. Most credit union loans are unsecured, making the interest rate non-tax deductible. However, they serve as an alternative to PACE loans and do not encumber your property with a lien. Your Energy Solutions works with the following credit unions:
With a solar lease, you “rent” the solar equipment installed on your roof, and the electricity it produces may help to lower your electric costs. Most lease terms are 15 to 20 years and require you to make monthly payments for the lease term. You never own the equipment, but you’re not responsible for it either, the lessor is. Solar leases are offered in several different variations: zero down, pay as you go, and pre-paid leases. If you choose a solar lease, you’ll forfeit several important benefits:
- Not eligible for the 26% Federal tax credit.
- System ownership.
- Quality solar equipment. Solar leases typically favor cheaper, low quality, less productive solar panels and inverters.
While not all leases are bad, solar leases generally work best for individuals who do not have the tax liability to benefit from Federal tax credits. Though solar leases are touted to “lock in your power bill”, most leases actually erode your savings over time as lease payments escalate annually. Most solar leases are funded by third party banks and investment firms that are looking to make a profit from their investment.
26% Federal Tax Credit
Purchasing or financing a solar electric system for your new or existing home earns you a Federal tax credit of 26% for the total cost of your solar investment (includes both solar parts and labor). The homeowner must have a tax liability to take advantage of this credit.
