Qualifying customers won’t have to pay anything to install a solar system from NRG Home Solar. This varies by state and credit checks.
NRG Home Solar has a partnership with Upromise, a college savings program offered by Sallie Mae. Every solar system NRG Home Solar installs comes with a $500 college savings bonus to qualifying Upromise members. This education bonus is only available in some states, but any customer who leases solar products from NRG Home Solar or has a representative do an assessment is eligible. There’s no obligation to buy for this great incentive.
Lease to Own
At the end of your lease, you can opt to buy your solar power system or continue leasing for five-year periods. Not all companies allow you to purchase a system, or purchase after leasing, so it’s a nice option to have.
Customers that refer new customers are eligible to receive a $1,000 referral bonus from NRG.
Because NRG Home Solar is owned by parent NRG Energy, it has the most secure financial backing of any solar company. NRG Energy is a Fortune 200 company with over $11.3 billion in fiscal revenue (in 2013).
