Financing Options for Solar in New Jersey

You’ve learned about solar energy and how it works. You see that solar energy makes sense for your home and in addition to the cost savings, switching to solar energy is a great way to help save the environment. Now the question is … how do you pay for it? The key is being a homeowner. Valuable State and Federal incentives available to you as a homeowner are used to reduce the cost of a new solar system to make it affordable. Regardless of your choice to lease or own the system, the incentives still work to help you save money by reducing or eliminating the electricity costs for your home.

Whether you’re looking to maximize your financial returns through an investment in solar, or just looking for a quick and easy way to save money, Ad Energy’s trained, professional experts can explain the options and programs suitable for your specific wants and needs.

Purchase Solar With Cash
Cash Purchase

For individuals that have access to capital – money sitting in their savings account or in underperforming investments – investing in solar energy for their home is a great option. Investments in solar systems typically return the original investment (called the payback period) in 5 to 8 years, depending on the specifics of your situation. Once the system pays for itself – all of the future saving and income is yours to keep! That’s better than stock market returns, at lower than stock market risk.

  • Claim local & federal tax incentives
  • A Home Equity Loan can also be used & may be tax-deductible
  • Your system will pay for itself with savings on your utility bills
  • Increase your property value
You may qualify for a loan term of up to 25 years
