Solar leases heating up installations

By Patrick O’Grady

Phoenix Business Journal

The sun may be providing the power for solar systems in Phoenix, but a leasing model is what’s providing the financing muscle to place them on rooftops.

Arizona Public Service Co. and Salt River Project, the Valley’s largest utilities, have seen continued interest in solar incentive programs even though they’ve dropped below $1 per watt. That’s largely because people are getting their systems installed for little or no money down, opting to lease them instead of buying them outright.
