Finance options for everyone

Streamline Solar offers various low cost financing options, partners and plans to help you save money when you decide it’s time for energy independence and low electric bills.  We’ll help you decide whether purchasing for cash or financing fits your lifestyle best.

Finance Options

A cash purchase typically offers the lowest cost per kilowatt hour and is potentially tax deductible.

With a cash purchase, you buy and own the system, along with all the energy it produces. A cash purchase requires the highest upfront cost, but will generally pay for itself more quickly than other options, and provides you with the lowest cost per kilowatt hour. When you purchase your solar system outright, it also allows you to utilize the Investment Tax Credit.

Benefits of purchasing your solar system using cash include:

  • You own the solar system
  • Contract value is paid directly to the solar provider
  • Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is claimed by you
  • Studies show purchased solar can increase home value
  • Quicker Return on investment
  • Provides the lowest monthly costs

Many consumers find that financing their solar system makes the best sense because it offers many of the same benefits of a cash purchase, but without the upfront costs.

It’s a great option if you want to own your solar system but don’t have the immediate funds for a cash purchase. Instead of high-cost electric bills from utility companies each month, you’ll have a lower-cost loan payment. Whether you use your own bank or one of our loan partners, we’ll help you every step of the way in obtaining the solar loan that works best for you.

Loan options include:

  • Self-Financing e.g. HELOC
  • Solar Loans through Streamline Solar’s preferred financing Partners

Benefits of using a loan for your solar include:

  • You own the solar
  • Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is claimed by you
  • No heavy upfront out-of-pocket expenses
  • No prepayment penalty on Solar Loans
  • Some loans are transferrable in the event you decide to move.

Absolutely the best company to work with! We originally started with Vivent solar and weren’t getting the customer service or quality we expected. Eli knocked on our door just a week after we had already signed with Vivent and we’re so glad he came when he did! We were able to cancel with Vivent and sign up with Streamline.

This has been the best and easiest decision ever. Eli was in contact with us through the whole procedure. Install was quick and the crew kept us informed of everything they were doing. Couldn’t have asked for anything better!

We love our solar electric system! Streamline Solar designed our system using American made products that we could be proud to own, while suggesting new technologies that other companies did not offer us, resulting in a more efficient use of our roof space and better production from the SUN! We love our new electric bills. Go Sun Devils!

Our experience with Streamline Solar has been very good. From the initial sales cycle, through the installation, and to the final step of getting the cellular monitoring system enabled. The salesman spent 5 hours with us on the first meeting. Who does that!

We had an unexpected slip in schedule but after explaining the importance of getting the job done this tax year the project manager figured out a way to get it done with time to spare. The installers were professional, courteous, and went out of their way to make sure that everything was working as expected before they left. They even painted the conduit to match our house color. The field project manager made a special trip to replace one of the panels that had some minor physical damage that wasn’t affecting the panel’s output. But he replaced it anyway. Although this is our first solar system I can’t imagine better service from a company. I can highly recommend Streamline Solar.

Not often do I write reviews because I’m often times so let down by businesses these days. However streamline solar has given me new hope on customer service and customer satisfaction.

From the day I met Marc at our 1st appointment he explained things in a way that you fully understand what you’re purchasing. There was no sales pressure or gimmicks or hidden facts, just an honest small company selling a great product that is saving me money . Their customer service is great and from start to finish my solar system went in without any headaches or issues! If you’re considering going solar I highly recommend streamline solar!

Great company to do business with. I found them through word of mouth because a few neighbors had their solar installed by Streamline. Also want to make a recommendation get Fred to come out to give you the rundown and quote. This is not a fly by night type of company. My system has been up and running for one year as of this month. Today I reached out to Fred to get some information about batteries added to my system. About a half hour later of chatting I brought up what I perceived as a issue with one of my panels under-producing. Fred is in sales and even though I decided not to buy a battery system he took the time to address my concern about one of my panels. Come to find out I have a roof vent creating a shadow on that panel. Since it was only a small percentage different than my other panels in output I see why that panel is a little lower. This is because I maxed out my roof with solar panels and not because of anything that Streamline missed. Very pleased to have chosen the right company. Thanks. Keep up the good work.

Initially, I had my doubts about solar. But after owning my system for nearly a year, I tell everybody “going solar” is a no brainer. My system consistently produces 85% of my electric needs according to my monthly SRP bill. Some months all I have to pay is SRP’s grid connection fee!

Streamline Solar provided the financing, guided me through the tax credit and rebate process and even came out and removed and re-installed my system after last October’s massive hail storm. Think about that! My roof didn’t live through that storm but my solar panels did! Yes, I’m a believer.
