Baker Electric Solar Zero Down Leasing Eases Upfront Cost Jitters

Baker Electric Solar, a full-service solar integrator specializing in green technology design / build for commercial and residential solar installations, offers SunPower® Lease option for cost-conscious residential customers.

Baker Electric Solar, a full-service solar integrator specializing in green technology design / build for commercial and residential solar system installations, offers a solar leasing option for cost-conscious residential customers. As a SunPower Elite Dealer, Baker Electric Solar (BES) is providing their residential customers with an affordable way to go solar with a $0 down, low monthly payment lease available through SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWR).


According to a SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association) survey, despite the cost of solar electric panels decreasing by 30% since the beginning of 2010, 48 percent of Americans cited cost as their biggest concern with choosing solar energy. Education on solar power system financing options is a challenge for solar integrators.

With customers' best interests in mind, Baker Electric Solar makes it a point to explain loan and lease financing options in detail at the time of an estimate. With the advent of the zero down SunPower® Lease, it is helping an entire new market of solar powered energy supporters go green.' What once was a five-digit upfront cost is now a credit check, zero down and low monthly fixed payments over 20 years (with other terms available). The lease is transferable and is not secured by the home. At the end of the lease, the solar home owner can renew, buy or return the system.

California-based SunPower is a leading manufacturer of high efficiency solar cells, solar power panels, and solar systems. With Baker Electric's 73-year history in the electrical contracting business and SunPower's 27 years of experience in the solar industry, lease customers can rest assured they are powering their home with stable solar companies.

"The SunPower® Lease option is exciting for our team here at Baker Electric Solar," said Ted Baker, president of BES. "What once was a closed door for people who wanted to go solar is now a door wide open with opportunities. When we mention that the equipment, as well as the maintenance of the solar power system, is covered in the lease, it makes both dollars and sense to start saving on electricity immediately with the lease option."
