Spread out the cost of your solar photovoltaic system over time! Afterall, very few people buy a car or house outright.
The state of solar energy has long been a lose-win situation. Spend a lot of money (lose) in the beginning and slowly break even over the course of the next 8 to 15 years–of course, after that your electricity is free (win)!
The purchasing plan for a solar photovoltaic system hasn’t changed much in its young life. But, there really hasn’t been too much reason for the solar industry to change things up. The apparent thinking being: “What could be more exciting than watching your electricity bills shrink over time to eventually $0?” Apparently plenty of things, because even with the rising cost of electricity and natural gas, and the knowledge of the havoc that the common coal burning power plant wreaks on our planet, solar inception isn’t skyrocketing the way it should.
Some new thinking may just change that!
Sun Run allows the consumer to forgo half of the initial upfront cost of purchasing a solar PV system for their house, and locks in the homeowner at a consistent, low, monthly electricity bill.

Not only does Sun Run offer low-cost financing, they also make going solar easier by providing monitoring and maintenance for the life of the system.
It’s nice to have another option in the world of solar energy. They both look attractive, but if it was the initial cost and maintenance of a solar PV system that kept you away–welcome back!
It’s time to finance the sun!
