In states where it’s available, solar leasing is extremely popular. Approximately 75% or so of homeowners who go solar in these states decide to go solar through a solar leasing/PPA option.
The big stat of the day today is that middle-class families who go solar in this way are projected to save about $600 a year off their electricity costs.
That comes to about $12,000 to $15,000 over the course of their 20- to 25-year solar lease or PPA. That’s of course practically the same as making an extra $12,000 to $15,000, but without having to pay taxes on the money.
