Solar Energy is affordable.
Tax incentives, rebates and financing options may significantly reduce the upfront cost of integrating solar energy into your life. Let's do the math on an average sized home system: In Cottonwood, AZ, if you purchased a 5.2 kW system at a net cost of $13,196 after rebates and tax credits, your payback period would be just 7-9 years depending on APS’s annual rate increase.
If you leased the same size system and prepaid a 20 year lease your out of pocket expense would be approximately $10,500 after installation and connection. Additionally, leasing has a significant advantage over purchasing, it is not only more cost effective, it comes with a built in 20 year parts and labor warranty on the panels and inverters. In the last two years the Arizona shift to leasing has grown exponentially so that now 80% of all new installations in APS territory are leased in APS.

Independence from rising energy costs.
Energy costs are rising and continue to rise as fossil fuel supplies dwindle. Solar energy reduces the impact of escalating utility expenses to your budget. depending upon which option you choose. When you purchase or lease you lock in less than todays APS rate for 20- 30 years!
Experience better returns than many long-term investments, with 200%-plus ROI over 25 years. Compare this to a five-year CD (average yearly return of 2.5%) or even the S&P 500 (average yearly return of 11%). Although some stocks can provide a higher return than a solar system, stock prices can be more volatile year after year.
Consider the following:
- Monthly electric bill is minimul to 0
- Resale value of home in a California study puts your minimum return on investment for a 5Kw system at 3 times your cost of installation and increased the overall value 4 to 10 percent.
- The duration to resale is also lowered because the buyer is purchasing a home with minimul electricity costs.
- Add to that: an extra 3kw over current usage will allow you an electric car you will be able to drive approximately 15,000 miles per year for the equivalent of .25 cents a gallon of gasoline!
