Why Would You Finance a Richmond Solar Loan?

Financing a Richmond solar loan is an excellent option if you don't want to pay for your solar energy system all up-front. Why would you consider solar financing?

Federal and state tax incentives you’re eligible for.
Depending on your loan terms and energy usage, your loan payment plus remaining electric bill should be less than your previous electric bill.

Lease a Richmond Solar Energy System

Many Richmond homeowners prefer to lease their solar energy system. The main difference between financing and leasing a solar system is that when you lease is that you don't own them and the lease provider will maintain them for you. We will connect you with a Richmond solar lease privider.

Richmond Solar Purchase Agreement (PPA)

A solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a contract to buy Richmond solar power based on a set rate for the electricity the solar system produces. With a Power Purchase Agreement, a Sungevity finance partner owns, installs, and maintains the (city name) solar system on your roof -- just like a solar lease. Unlike a solar lease, you pay for the solar power you produce rather than the panels themselves.

Richmond Solar FAQ's

Is solar right for my Richmond home?

We offer a no-pressure consultation to help figure out if going solar works for you. First, we will gather all 12 months of your past energy use in Richmond. That is what makes our Richmond quotes as accurate as possible, by both the amount by which we can offset your use and the cost/savings potential of going solar. By learning how your usage fluctuates from month to month, and because both solar production and utility rates fluctuate as well, knowing all 12 months makes the quotes as accurate and personalized as possible. We will then use our remote proprietary design tool to engineer a custom solar solution for your home. Of course, we also complete all of the interconnection paperwork on your behalf. And finally, we use local solar experts to install your solar system hassle-free.

How big a roof do I need in Richmond?

This depends on your $city_name usage history. When you request an iQuote, Sungevity will use our proprietary design tool to look at your roof and determine how many Richmond solar panels it can accommodate.

Should I re-roof my Richmond house before I install solar panels?

Richmond Solar panels last a long time so it makes sense to avoid having to remove and reinstall them. Your Solar Consultant will help you assess the need to re-roof.

What if my Richmond roof is shaded?

Shade reduces the amount of electricity your Richmond solar energy system can produce. Our remote solar design team will work to position your panels where they will get maximum sun exposure. On occasion, we find that a roof is too shady to make solar feasible.

Do Richmond solar systems require maintenance?

Richmond solar systems generally require very little maintenance. If you lease a system, we guarantee your systems energy production. If you ever have any questions about what maintenance is necessary, please contact us at customerservice@sungevity.com.

Will I have power during a blackout?

In the event of a Richmond blackout, your inverter will automatically shut down for safety reasons. Thus you will not have electricity until power is restored to the grid.

Are battery options available in Richmond?

Yes, Sungevity offers battery solutions with your grid-tied solar system in Richmond.

Do Richmond solar panels generate electricity in bad weather?

Richmond Solar panels need sun to generate electricity, but even in areas with bad weather your system will still produce. If you live in a cloudy area, or an area with seasonal snow, your expected weather conditions will be factored into our estimates for your energy production.

Does solar work in foggy neighborhoods?

Richmond Solar systems continue to produce even when it is cloudy. For example, on a cloudy day, your panels might produce 30% of what they normally would. If you live in a cloudy area, or an area with seasonal snow, your expected weather conditions will be factored into our estimates for your energy production.
