SolarCity, a provider of solar financing, design, installation, monitoring and related services, has announced the availability of its SolarLease option for homeowners and businesses in Tucson, Ariz.
SolarCity recently won approval from the Arizona Corporation Commission to extend solar service agreement options to nonprofit organizations in Arizona. The company will make those options available to Tucson area schools and other nonprofit organizations.
Through its financing options, SolarCity allows Tucson homeowners, businesses and non-profit organizations to install and use solar power for no money down and pay less than they previously paid for electricity, according to the company.
SolarLease pricing in Tucson starts at $30 per month with no upfront cost, on approved credit. SolarLease includes custom design and installation, SolarCity's SolarGuard Internet-based monitoring service, repairs and insurance.
SolarCity's lease option is made possible in part by solar rebates provided by Tucson Electric Power (TEP), and SolarCity will handle all rebate administration paperwork for the customer. SolarCity's offer will initially be available exclusively to homeowners and businesses served by TEP in the Tucson area.
