Solar Financing

Our Solar Payment:

  • Do you recognize us? It’s Tyler & Alicia Uebelhoer, the proud owners of Buffalo Solar Solutions!
  • We paid cash up front
  • Other financing options available, including $0 down with no out-of-pocket-costs and solar terms for 5, 10, 15, or 20 years

The numbers in this case study pertain specifically to this customer. Prices and monthly solar payments are based off of current market prices and numerous other factors. (Get your free solar consultation and solar panel estimate »)

*Customers are still responsible for paying the basic hookup fee to the utility company (in this case, National Grid), which ranges from approximately $15–$17 a month (plus tax).

**We paid cash up front, so we have no monthly solar payment. Most of our customers choose a 15-year term, which in most cases brings their solar payment down to the same cost as their average electric bill. Keep in mind whichever term the customer chooses, they can pay off their system early with NO prepayment penalties.
