Determine your usage

Your monthly electricity bill shows your electricity use over a period of time. This is measured in kilowatt hours, or kWh. Because rates often vary by month, with a baseline rate plus a tiered rate, we suggest you review your usage over a one-year period. Just add up your kWh usage from the past 12 bills, then divide the total by 12 to get the average. You'll need this for the form below, which will allow us to prepare an accurate estimate for you.

Choose your financing

The increasing popularity of solar has created a variety of financing options to increase long term affordability and savings. Four main types are summarized below. For more information, contact us or a Kyocera Authorized Dealer/Installer near you.

Purchase

  • Pay for the installation up front, or obtain financing via a financial institution
  • Allows you to take advantage of all federal and state tax credits/incentives that apply
  • You may have sole responsibility for system maintenance (check your contractor/provider agreement)
  • Some states offer subsidized solar energy loans, and interest on secured loans may be tax deductible

Lease or Purchase Power Agreement (PPA)

  • Solar leases and power purchase agreements (PPAs) are similar to a rental agreement
  • Entitles you to receive all system benefits during the contract term, usually 20 years
  • Typically comes with little to no upfront costs — just a scheduled monthly payment
  • Does not allow you to take advantage of any federal or state tax credits/incentives

Community Solar Array (CSA)

  • Community-shared solar systems (CSAs) are gaining popularity in the U.S.
  • Ideal for those who rent their homes, have poor credit or cannot install solar due to rooftop limitations
  • Each subscriber receives a share of the electricity generated by the community system as a bill credit
  • Not available in all areas – click here to see if your region supports shared renewable projects

Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE)

  • Authorized local governments (cities and counties) help property owners finance energy retrofits
  • Allows the property owner to borrow money to pay for renewable energy improvements
  • Loan is repaid over a period of years through a special assessment on the owner's property
  • Not available in all areas – click here to see if it is offered in your state and country
