There are three ways to fund a solar installation on or near your premises
You purchase the system outright and via electricity savings recoup your investment over a number of years.
The system is paid-for by a third party who own and operate the asset on your behalf. Any energy generated by the solar PV system is sold to you at typically 20% less than what you currently pay for your electricity.
Funds – secured against the solar panels – are borrowed for the installation and repaid over 5 – 10 years. Because the savings on your electricity bill are used to service the loan facility the impact to cashflow is less noticeable.
