Always use a professional, licensed contractor to install your solar electric system. While Dominion Energy does not endorse any contractors, here are some resources to consider:

Buying vs. Leasing

There are several factors to consider when deciding whether to buy or lease your system. Consult with your Installer to determine which choice is right for you.

  • Buying a renewable energy system from a contractor or manufacturer means paying for it up front or financing your purchase through a bank loan. Consult with your tax advisor, as federal tax credits and SC tax credits may be available.
  • Leasing allows you to "rent" the renewable energy system for a set period of time. Generally, you pay a fixed monthly rate no matter how much energy the system produces each month, though this rate may escalate each year during the term of the lease. Because you do not own the system, federal and state tax credits may not be available - consult with your tax advisor to confirm.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you purchase or lease your solar system by 5/31/2021, please note that the current Net Energy Metering tariff has been approved through 5/31/2029, after which date the cost structure for your customer generation will change.
