One major setback for people considering solar energy for their homes and/or businesses is cost. However, there are plenty of programs out there for those that are committed to saving energy and helping the environment without breaking the bank. For example, a company based in Foster City, Calif., SolarCity, offers a residential leasing option so homeowners can start utilizing clean, solar energy without the high upfront cost. Homeowners simply pay a portion of their energy bill savings. They still save, and do something great for the environment by going solar.
It is great to see companies that offer alternative energy and energy-saving products so that the average consumer can afford them. As businesses in the energy industry, we need to not only continue to find solutions for people but also make them accessible consumers.
