The solar leasing companies don't want you to see your real costs for electricity, including your 15+ year lease payments. Although the solar lease option saves you a little bit of net cash in the first few years, it is very clear that a solar lease is much more expensive in the medium and long term. For a typical 5,000 watt system in Silicon Valley, the total electricity costs over 25 years are $92,000; with a solar lease, the total costs are $82,000; with a solar bank loan the total costs are $42,000, and with a cash purchase the total costs are $39,000. Basically, with today's low solar prices, leasing is a bad deal!

"On Friday December 18, 2015, the U.S. House and Senate agreed by significant margins to grant extensions to the 30 percent investment tax credit (ITC) for solar energy and the 2.3-cent-per-kilowatt-hour production tax credit (PTC) for wind power."
