RENT YOUR OWN SOLAR PANELS
Posted By Emily Pilloton On January 17, 2007 @ 1:34 pm In Renewable Energy,Solar Power | 21 Comments
While the advantages of solar power are profound and many, some homeowners continue to shy away from the installation of residential photovoltaic cells due to high upfront costs and long “payback” timelines. But now, a rental program called REnU  is making all that money talk a moot point. Delaware-based Citizenre , a renewable energy development group, will rent solar panels to US residents on a per-kilowatt basis on a one, five, or twenty-five year contract. With only a $500 deposit, paid back at the end of the contract WITH interest, homeowners can easily and inexpensively make the switch from local utilities to solar power. What’s more, Citizenre  acquires all necessary permits for residential installation, making the process easy as pie.
