Why own your solar system?

Advantages of owning your solar system versus leasing one:

  • Save more money over the lifetime of the system (vs. leasing).
  • Improve your home’s market value.
  • Have more control over the design of your system.
  • Take advantage of incentive programs like a 26% Federal Tax Credit.
  • Earn extra income from the SREC Auction, which may enable you to sell excess solar energy back to Delmarva Power.
