20 year loan most popular plan in 2017-2019 for me as an energy consultant:"Bill Gurgol"

  • Q: When is money saved?… 
  • A: After you save it. 20 Year Loan offers immediate monthly savings, Day one. No money down. In PG&E land, most families pay less even after you get to keep the Federal tax credit. 
  • Home Value (ENERGY INCLUDED wihen you buy this home) 
  • Finish line = No more electricity costs.
  • Solar loans have only grown in popularity in the last few years after banks recognized success and popularity of leases previously.
  • Go Solar In Dublin, CA!:-) 

$57 electric bill in 2014?...
Rate increases have raised several times yearly. 

The same 415 kWh monthly that was 57 is now over $100.

6-8 Years is typical projected ROI. Bigger bills will happen faster.


What should be considered when factoring ROI?...

  1. Tax Credit will give you NET cost. You would never achieve this tax credit unless you went solar. 
  2. 6.8% yearly average rate incease with PG&E over time. See historic rate increases on our Tariffs page.
  3. Every dollar given to utility is rent money. Solar is an investment in your future. Home value studies have proven day 1 is the real ROI. Reality is you just quit renting. You are now no longer at the mercy of rate increases. One less variable in your family's financial well being. Homes with solar continue to sell faster and for more money...

Fastest finish line is typically lowest interest rates.  


5 year loan will have higher monthly payments compared to 10 year / 12 / 15 / 20 /25 years. 


Longer term loans will usually raise interest rates, but monthly payments are lower when  payoff period is extended. 


Longer term loan =  less monthly NOW..
