Renting

For renters who are wanting the benefits of solar energy, the first step is expressing your interest with your landlord. Switching to solar energy is a mutually beneficial upgrade for renters and property owners.

A landlord that is not able to or not interested in paying for the cost of a solar system, may want to consider a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). A PPA allows a third-party installer to pay and install a solar system at a property, under the approval of the property owner. The property then acts as a host for the solar system and will produce the energy for the tenant/renter to use. The energy used will be sold to the renter/tenant by the third-party installer at a fixed and reduced rate, in comparison to the grid.

If you are a landlord (or a renter with your landlord’s permission) and you’re interested in installing a solar system at your property, make sure you fill in your details to receive 3 obligation free quotes to start the process!
