When summer hits in Bakersfield, the pain isn’t just felt outdoors with triple-digit temperatures, but also indoors when the monthly PG&E bill arrives. Even when averaged out over the entire year, Kern County residents’ electricity usage is well above national average. That is why going solar makes a lot of sense to so many in our community. With a high efficiency solar system from SunPower by Sun Solar on their roof, most homeowners end up paying LESS per month than they did before. Plus, they are protected from ever increasing electricity rates.
But many Bakersfield homeowners aren’t sure whether they can afford to go solar. In the past, purchasing residential solar panels might have required a full, upfront payment or a home equity loan. Luckily, these days, there are several ways to afford a solar system.
Solar financing options include solar leases and solar loans, both of which include options that don’t require any upfront payments and affordable monthly payments to help homeowners take advantage of solar savings.
