If you’ve already looked into going solar, someone may have told you that one of the benefits of the leasing model is that the leasing company will be responsible for all solar panel maintenance.
Though this sounds great, it’s really just a sales tactic.
Since there are no moving parts with a solar system, there is no real need for upkeep and maintenance. If your panels are to break, your product warranty will cover you for 25 years. If you have issues with your inverter, you’ll be covered for at least 12 years.
The only maintenance your solar system will need is if you live in a dry climate. In this case, you’ll want to hose off your panels once a year or so to prevent dust and dirt buildup.
There are no problems with the leasing model, just don’t allow the thought of maintenance and upkeep to prevent you from purchasing your system.
