How NRG Works

NRG Home Solar manages the design, engineering, permitting, inspection, tax rebate/incentives, monitoring, utility connection, and homeowner education processes. You won’t get PPAs with NRG Home Solar, but you will receive savings and convenience. Every quoting process begins with a virtual analysis of your home (over the phone). This determines if your home is ideal for solar power and savings. After that, NRG Home Solar visits your house, draws up a design, requests permits, and works with your utility companies. Once complete, NRG uses its network of top solar panel installers to get you up and running with clean, affordable energy.

NRG Home Solar

Cost varies by state, but some homeowners can lease their solar installation without putting a dollar down, saving a colossal amount of cash upfront. NRG locks in power rates too, so during the course of your 20-year lease, your electric bill won’t fluctuate.

NRG customers can also count on consistency with their lease payments—what you agree to at signing is what you’ll pay for the length of the lease. Once your term is up, you can buy the system from NRG or renew the lease for as long as you’re qualified.


NRG Home Solar protects your investment, covering issues that arise during installation and anything that malfunctions over the course of your lease. Since NRG Home Solar monitors your system, it’ll know if something isn’t right and will dispatch professionals to fix it right away.

What Sets NRG Home Solar Apart

NRG Home Solar has many incentives, including:

Zero Down

Qualifying customers won’t have to pay anything to install a solar system from NRG Home Solar. This varies by state and credit checks.

College Savings

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.

Referral Bonus

Customers that refer new customers are eligible to receive a $1,000 referral bonus from NRG.

Financial Backing

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).
