Leasing solar doesn’t pay if you sell your home

Leasing solar doesn’t pay if you sell your home

You may decide to switch to solar for a number of reasons.

The decision is an economic one because it’ll free you from overpaying each month on your utility bill and it will increase your property value. The decision is also about doing good by the environment. Solar energy provides a smart alternative to fossil fuels at a time when education and technology allow us to pave our own environmental future of preservation and protection of our planet for the immediate and distant future.

All great reasons to make the solar switch!

Customers take great joy in saving money each month and the resulting boost in equity to their homes. However, while leasing solar may help your pocketbook and the environment, it may not be all that great for your home’s resale value.

In some cases, selling a home with leased solar panels can drive the price down. This leaves the current homeowner with two unfavorable options: either buy out the remaining lease payment or attempt to find a buyer amendable to taking over the lease.

Here’s why leasing solar isn’t the best idea if you’re planning to sell your home:

When you sell your home with leased equipment, it makes an already complex transaction more complex – and this added layer may even scare off potential homebuyers. In the end, your leverage as a home seller dwindles, along with your expected net profits.

Another tidbit worth noting: Even if your buyer agrees to take the lease off your hands, the process is not straightforward. For example, some companies must abide by their credit standards and the buyer may not be an ideal candidate. This can stop the deal in its tracks.

Don’t leave this to chance.

If you want to go solar, contact us today and learn how affordable solar applications truly are. We offer a range of packages: solar electricity, NET metering (which provides credits for your unused electricity), solar pool heating and solar water heating. Whatever your needs are, we can find the right solution and direct you to the proper financing packages without the hassle of a lease.

Everything you need to know about next month’s solar eclipse

Everything you need to know about next month’s solar eclipse

It’s been nearly 40 years since we’ve seen a celestial show like this!

On Aug. 21, the continental United States will have its eyes toward the sky for a total solar eclipse, a rare and special event for the ages.

The shadow from the Great American Solar Eclipse will span cross-country, from Oregon to South Carolina, providing millions of people an opportunity of a lifetime to witness one of nature’s most intriguing spectacles.

In fact, the last time a show like this occurred, Aztec Solar was just getting off the ground. For more than 30 years, we’ve been solar pioneers, providing Northern California with quality solar solutions and savings to thousands of homeowners and businesses.

We’ll all be on bated breath on Aug. 21 as the sun “disappears” behind the moon, resulting in temperature drops and twilight-like conditions, depending on where you are.

The path of totality – the area in which the eclipse will be most visible – is about 70 miles wide. It’ll traverse through Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

NASA put together this awesome map so you can pinpoint the eclipse’s path. The timing will depend on where you are and while California is not in the totality zone, you can still see it in the Sacramento region as a partial eclipse!

There’s a ton of excitement surrounding this event and the next one will not happen until 2024, but it will not be as visible as this upcoming event, which occurs about every 1,000 years (for all the lower 48 states to see).

As we gear up for this electrifying moment, we hope your enthusiasm carries over into solar applications. The sun is a tremendous resource that you can take advantage of each day. From our solar electricity to solar water heating, there’s a solution for your home and business needs with Aztec Solar.

Solar plant designed in the shape of a panda bear

Solar technology continues to capture our imagination because of its ability to provide a flexible energy source.

In China, a solar company is turning heads with its latest design for a solar plant that’s in the shape of a panda bear. The panda farm is the first of Panda Green’s several bear-shaped farms that will provide as much as 100 megawatts of power.

Panda Green officially flipped the switch on its panda-shape solar power grid last month.

In a statement, the company framed the accomplishment not in bear terms, but in the impact it’ll have on the environment and consumers. “A 100MW Panda Power Plant can provide 3.2 billion [kilowatt-hours] of green electricity in 25 years, equivalent to saving 1.056 million tons of coal, or reducing 2.74 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions,” the company said.

That’s design innovation and representative of the unlimited potential of solar — which we know a little bit about, too.

For more than 30 years, Aztec Solar has tapped into the possibilities. As a pioneer of solar applications across the Sacramento region, we provide award-winning customer service alongside our energy solutions that include electricity, solar pool heating, solar water heating and more.

Our successes are rooted in our determination to provide the best solar technologies to our customers by using industry-leading training, high-quality products and innovative technologies to meet your needs at home or place of business.

As technology and our imagination continues to develop, we will see more and more innovation in the realm of green energy. Already, thanks to our hard work and advancement, solar energy is more affordable than ever and provides a viable path for a brighter and healthier future.
