1 Subject to underwriting guidelines and approval; deferral of first payment depends on the date of funding; interest accrues during the entire deferred payment period.

2 PACE payments are incorporated into and repaid by you as part of your property taxes which are legally transferable upon sale; however, some mortgage lenders may require full repayment of the special tax upon sale.


Claim Your ITC Finance 100% of your new solar system and you may receive up to 30% of eligible project cost back from the federal government through your Solar ITC.
