What Is The Difference Between A Solar Lease And PPA?


While the terms “Solar Lease” and “PPA” are very similar in practice, there is a difference between the two. With a solar lease, you agree to pay a fixed monthly “rent” or lease payment, which is calculated using the estimated amount of electricity the system will produce, in exchange for the right to use the solar energy system. With PPA, instead of paying to “rent” the solar panel system, you agree to purchase the power generated by the system at a set per-kWh price.


Overview of Solar Lease & PPA

  • Many are $0-down agreements, but some require a down payment or ask you to pay upfront.

  • You can expect 20% to 40% savings over the cost of your utility electricity bill.

  • With a solar lease, you do not own the solar panel system on your property.
