No-risk solar power for much less than the electric co?
Apparently it is possible to buy solar electricity at a lower price than the electric company's lowest tier. The following companies may install solar panels (which they own) on your roof and you are not charged for anything but the electricity these panels produce.
Companies and locations
Companies offering Power Purchase Agreements
- SunRun Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and most recently, Oregon.
- I think you have to buy as much power as the panels produce. ~ Lumenos (talk) 18:35, June 13, 2011 (EDT)
Companies offering "solar lease"
- SolarCity Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon and Texas.
- Sungevity has offices in Berkeley and Oakland, California... 2009 Sungevity announced that it had raised $6 million to expand its services to Southern California and the Central Valley.
In California the electric company is required to connect these systems to the grid but rumor has it that they make it a low priority so it may take a long time to get it running.
