...every member of the team at Green Sun Energy Services made the entire process of switching to solar a pleasure. From the beginning, Glen was comprehensive and detailed in his explanation of the product, responsive and informative about every question and concern, and professional and timely with the installation and all of the paperwork. I am still in shock. Since our installation I have not had to pay a single bill to JCPL. This is a wonderful investment and has been a wonderful experience. - Nina S. - in Little Silver, NJ | Review Source: Angie's List
Purchasing Solar From Green Sun Energy Services
Our client's say that it's our end-to-end service capabilities and long-term commitment to customer relationships that separate us from ordinary solar panel installation companies.
Taking a customer driven approach to simplifying the process by which NJ homeowners can garner the rewards of solar energy is what led us to the development of our SolarBase™ Program. More than just a solar installation, SolarBase™ is a long-term energy management program designed to maximize your energy production and financial returns.
All Of Our SolarBase™ Programs Include 10 Years Of:
- Remote Solar System Monitoring
- On-Site Maintenance
- Annual Inspection and Solar Panel Cleaning
- SREC Management, Aggregation and Sale
- Money Back Solar Energy Production Guarantee
Our $99 down SolarBase™ Complete Program includes special solar financing (not tied to the equity in your home) in addition to all of the services listed above. Typical loans include a Term Loan and a Same-As-Cash (SAC) loan.
- The Term Loan is used to cover net price of the system --- the amount you are responsible for after accounting for the Federal Investment Tax Credit. Term loans are typically secured by your credit rating and in some cases Fixture Filing on the equipment. Solar financing terms can range from as short as 6 months to as long as 20 years... with most clients going with a 15 year loan term. Having this many options allows us to focus on helping you achieve your investment goals rather than just offering a single loan product.
- The SAC loan is typically used to cover your anticipated Federal Investment Tax Credit. With no payment/no interest for the term of this loan, you should plan to you pay off this loan when you received your Tax Credit. Interest on the SAC loan is only waived by the bank if it's repaid within the term of the loan (typically coming due 6, 12, 15, or 18 months from your installation date).
We are Dealers and/or Agents of five financial institutions representing over different 100 loan programs. Eligibility for each loan program is subject to credit approval by the individual bank. Loan terms are subject to change without notice. Refer to the bank's loan agreement for a complete disclosure.
SolarBase™ Self Directed
SolarBase™ Self Directed, simply assumes that you will provide your own solar financing or personal funding of the solar panel system. In most cases, we can offer you a Same-As-Cash loan (described above) to cover your anticipated Federal Investment Tax Credit.

"We had Green Sun Energy Services install our Solar System 3 years ago and it has worked out very well for my family. Everything has worked as expected: in terms of our Utility Bill being much lower and the SREC program working so well that it has been a truly outstanding benefit..." - Desmond S. | Review Source: Angie's List
Sample First Year Solar Savings
"Everything they said was true and accurate. I generated almost a 1000 kWh more than my estimate in the 1st year. The entire year cost me 26 dollars for electric. With the SRECs and the electric savings I should recoup my investment in 4 years." - Jack F. | Review Source: Angie's List
