Sungevity Solar Financing Options

Sungevity offers three finance plans. As with other solar panel installers, you can also purchase the solar system outright.

Sungevity partners with loan and lease providers throughout the country that offer a $0 down payment solar lease for qualified buyers. Sungevity’s solar lease program aligns with the industry-standard procedure: for a monthly fee, the lease provider installs, owns and maintains the solar system and components for you.

Sungevity also offers a solar Power Purchase Agreement, commonly known as a PPA, which, for a set monthly fee, lets the company own, install and maintain the solar system on your home.

Sungevity Solar Panels & Equipment

Among the reasons we like Sungevity is that the company provides a customized solution for each customer. Sungevity chooses whatever high-quality solar panels are necessary to fit your home’s needs. Although Sungevity uses multiple manufacturers, the panel style is generally the industry-standard black-on-black monocrystalline panel.

Solar Panel Warranty

Sungevity provides a 20-year equipment warranty, which covers the panels, inverter, and other equipment. The company also has a 25-year performance warranty, which guarantees a certain level of energy output. Last, Sungevity has a 20-year workmanship warranty, which covers the solar system labor and installation.

Maintenance & Troubleshooting

As with most solar panel installers, the homeowner is responsible for any routine maintenance, such as cleaning the solar panels. Any post-installation issues should be directed toward a Sungevity representative. Given the company’s robust warranty, your problem is likely covered by the 20-year workmanship guarantee.
