15 Frequently Asked Questions Does a solar system make financial sense for me? Yes! Solar power is cleaner and less expensive than power from the utility company. Solar is a smart financial investment because you will save money every year as utility rates continue to escalate. Plus, a solar system will increase your home value. 1 A SolarLease can be a better investment than purchasing your system because you do not have a big upfront payment and can save your money for other opportunities. You save money every month on electricity bills and can even be cash flow positive right away. What are my options at the end of the contract? A SolarLease is a very flexible way to go solar. When your contract ends, you have several good options from which to choose: You can ask SolarCity to remove your system for free. You can upgrade to a new system with the latest solar technology under a new contract. You can extend your agreement in five year increments. Can I decide to buy the system later? No, but you have the option to renew your lease in five-year increments and will have other options at term end, as noted above. How does the Performance Guarantee work? SolarCity offers a performance guarantee that your system will produce as much electricity as we promise, or we will pay you back annually. The amount of electricity we promise to deliver is specified in your contract, so there are no surprises. We proudly stand by our claims. If your system underperforms, SolarCity will refund you per kwh shortfall at the end of each year. Our production estimates take into account normal weather variation and solar panel performance over time. We track your system performance through our SolarGuard online monitoring service, which you also have access to 24/7. What if I move to a new home? You also have several options if you move before the end of the contract: You can transfer it to the new owners at no cost. You can buy out the system and include it in the value of the house solar homes typically have a higher resale value. You can pay to have it moved to your new home. See the contract for certain restrictions. How can the Refer a Friend Program cover my solar costs? As soon as you become a SolarCity customer, you will qualify for our Refer a Friend Program. We want to see more people save energy and adopt clean solar power. To show you our appreciation, we will send you $400 for every new friend you refer who installs a SolarCity solar system on their home or $1,000 on their business. Just a few referrals a year can cover your solar costs. GLOSSARY Kilowatt Hour (kwh) A measurement of energy consumption. One kilowatt hour is defined as the amount of energy consumed by a 1000-Watt appliance running continuously for 1 hour.
