“The upfront cost for the solar installation – zero – made the addition of that green project a no-brainer.”
Brian Petersen, Director of Operations and Development

Investing in solar to power your building has great financial returns, but can sometimes require a significant initial investment. Brightergy offers BrighterLease™, a program to make it easy for you to start generating solar energy – and solar-energy savings – without upfront costs.
HOW DO SOLAR-PANEL LEASING PROGRAMS WORK?
Brightergy owns and operates the solar system and leases it back to you. You start producing your own solar power and see renewable-energy savings immediately. It means less electricity costs and more funds for your mission.
FIXED MONTHLY PAYMENTS
As the owner, Brightergy takes advantage of the solar tax credit, depreciation, and local utility solar-energy rebates in order to lower the cost of energy to you. You simply pay a low monthly lease payment for the solar-energy system that will be less than the cost you would have paid the utility company for the same amount of generated electricity. Fixing your payment over the lease term provides certainty. There is no upfront investment required and you save money from day one.
Brightergy owns the solar-power system and will handle all maintenance needs at no additional cost to you.
You will receive access to an online monitoring system that provides real-time data on the solar system’s energy production.
A typical 25-kilowatt solar-energy system will eliminate 52,497 pounds of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) pollution each year, which is the environmental equivalent to planting 611 tree seedlings or preventing the carbon emissions created by driving the average American car over 57,000 miles.
