Our financing options

Use our PPA to power your business with on-site solar energy without upfront investment

Our PPA financing option is a hassle-free option that delivers efficient, clean solar power and generates immediate savings for your business. This commercial solar panel financing option is ideal for organizations looking to reap the many benefits of installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on their site. The PPA requires no upfront investment and no solar PV system ownership responsibilities – Centrica Business Solutions is responsible for any maintenance needed for the solar PV system and for the removal of the system at the end of the contract. We offer two PPA solutions:

PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy)

PACE is an innovative financing option that allows property owners to finance the up-front cost of energy efficiency improvements and then pay the costs back over time (typically 10 to 25 years) through a voluntary tax assessment.  The unique characteristic of PACE financing is that the assessment is attached to the property rather than an individual.

PACE may be funded by private investors or government programs and is available in states with enabling legislation and active programs. Energy incentives, rebates, and tax credits can be used to offset project costs or pay down a PACE loan. To date, 36 states plus the District of DC, have adopted legislation for commercial PACE programs.
