When you lease your solar panels, you get a solar lease (PPA) where you make monthly payments. You will never own your solar system. Compared to other solar financing options, a solar lease does come with negatives. You cannot receive the deductions that come from the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). You have to own your system to receive a state or federal tax credit. Benefits of solar leasing include:
