GSES is very professional and the work was exceptional. They did everything they said they would and they were pleasant to work with. No hidden fees, no nonsense, just the great solar system I was looking for. - Ray B. Howell, NJ | Review Source: Angie's List

How Much Money Can Solar Save Me?
Many companies are advertising “Free Solar”--- but it’s not really free, it’s a zero down installation with 20- 25 years of lease payments... so let’s call it what it really is - a Zero Down Solar Lease!
A zero down lease enables us to install solar on your home with the lowest cost of entry --- $0.00 down followed by a small monthly payment that is lower than your current electric bill.
Our LeaseBase™ Monthly program leverages third party financing to pay for the installation, maintenance, and support of solar on your house. In return, you make a monthly lease payment based on the amount of solar energy your system generates. In other words, you’re purchasing the power that your solar panels generate at rates that can be significantly lower than you pay to the electric company.
Escalators And Down Payments
Our LeaseBase™ Monthly program allows you to select a small annual increase in your lease payments or no increases.
For clients that only plan to stay in their homes for 5 to 10 years, we suggest a lease rate escalator of between 1.9 and 2.9%. This allows you accrue greater savings up front - because your lease payment increases at a slower rate than projected utility rate increases. By the time you move you should get your money’s worth. If you plan to stay more than 10 years a 0% escalator will deliver the greatest long term savings.
You can also opt to pay down your monthly lease much like you can when you lease a car - a larger up front deposit reduces your monthly lease payment. Our Local Solar Consultants can walk you through all of your options.
With Green Sun at your side, switching to clean and inexpensive solar power has never been easier. We’ll work with you to determine if purchasing or leasing solar is the best fit for you and your family.
