Solar leasing is putting renewable energy in the hands of more people, by eliminating the prohibitive up-front cost of purchasing solar panels. Once OneRoof Energy installs the PV system, the electricity generated replaces energy purchased from the utility company; the balance drawn from the grid is set at a lower-priced rate tier. Typical savings over the life of this 25-year agreement ranges from $30,000 to $50,000. The lease can be transferred if the customer sells the home, and includes service and maintenance at no extra cost.

Lighter and smaller than the previous generation, these modules include anti-PID technology and enhanced energy efficiency. An anti-reflective coating ensures high sunlight absorption, and efficiency ratings fall between 13.3 and 14.4 percent, at normal operating temperatures. These sturdy modules are certified to withstand up to 4000 Pa wind load and 7000 Pa snow load; the aluminum frame and non-coating glass also reduce the risk of salt corrosion. Offered in 60- and 72-cell configurations, HSL polycrystalline modules come with a 12-year product warranty, and a 25-year linear performance warranty.
