If you’ve heard the term “Free Solar” you’ve probably thought it was too good to be true. There are two ways “Free solar” can work for you.
First, for lower income homeowners, there are programs like GRID Alternatives that can actually provide you with free solar if you are to qualify. This is a great service, but not everyone will qualify.
Free solar that can work for everyone is a solar loan.
With a loan, you can pay nothing up front and have a monthly payment less than what you’re currently paying your utility company. Also, since you’re purchasing the system, you’re adding that value to your home. That’s actually better than solar for free.
