Finance Options

You have three major finance options when investing in solar energy: CapEx, Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), and Lease.

Capital Expenditure can deliver the fastest return on investment and allow you to take ownership of all assets. This option is suitable for businesses with access to low-cost capital.

Learn About Solar Finance

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a contract to purchase solar energy at a fixed rate, which is becoming an increasingly popular procurement method for several reasons. Not only do PPAs require no capital outlay, but they also remove the risks associated with owning and maintaining the solar system yourself.

Solar Lease

A Solar Lease option removes the upfront capital requirement of a solar system and spreads the cost over 7-10 years. This option can deliver a cash flow positive outcome from day one.

No Upfront Costs

At Smart Commercial Solar, we work with several preferred funding partners that can structure finance options with no upfront cost, to deliver immediate savings to your business.
