How it Works

A $20,000 solar project with 100% financing works like this:

  • Using the Solar Tax Credit Loan Option – 25% of the project, or $5,000 could be borrowed at 9.100% APR* with 18 payments of $298.22.

  • Using the Residential Solar Loan Option – the remaining 75% of the project could be financed using a 7-year balloon loan – $15,250 ($15,000 + $250 loan origination fee) at 9.100% APR* with 84 payments of $174.41 per month and a final balloon payment of $8,556.59

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Rates shown are as of April 11, 2023 and are the lowest possible qualified buyers for that specific amount, loan type and term.  Financing must be used for qualifying clean energy projects related to solar system installations and is subject to credit approval and program qualifications.
