Solar System Rental – An Affordable Lease of Energy for Homes

by | Jul 26, 2023 | solar rental

Ready for some solar-powered future talk? Brace yourself for the solar system rental proposition  –  the hippest way to rock the sun’s energy without breaking the bank. 

It’s like renting a solar superhero for your home! Here’s the deal: instead of buying your home’s entire solar system setup, you can rent it! Versofy SOLAR swoops in, arranges installation of the panels on your roof plus inverter batteries and accessories, and voila! You can start generating clean, green electricity without the hassle of capital payments and sophisticated setups. 

And the best part? No upfront costs! You pay a monthly fee, just like having a renewable energy BFF on a subscription plan. So, you can enjoy the perks of solar power, save money, and dance around in eco-friendly glee. It’s time to shine bright, save the planet, and have a residential solar solution as flexible as your favourite dance moves when everyone’s walking on eggshells like an Egyptian! 

The Benefits of a Solar System Rental for Households

First off, it’s all about saving that hard-earned moola. With a rental agreement, you can curb those hefty upfront costs and start saving from day one. 

Say goodbye to expensive installation fees and hello to affordable monthly solar prices that fit your budget like a custom-made suit. 

Not only will you be slashing your electricity bill, but you’ll also be reducing your carbon footprint like an eco-warrior. It’s a win-win! Plus, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that you’re using clean, renewable energy to power your home. And guess what? Maintenance and repairs? Not your worry anymore! 

The Difference Between a Solar System Rental and Rent-to-Own Solar 

Solar system rental is like having a solar superhero as a temporary sidekick. You pay a monthly fee to use the solar system, enjoy immediate savings, and leave any maintenance to the experts.

On the other hand, rent-to-own solar is the superhero’s apprentice program. You make monthly payments, just like renting, but with the option to eventually own the system outright. It’s like training wheels for solar ownership! You’ll still enjoy savings and maintenance support, but with the goal of becoming a solar champion in the end. You choose your adventure — rental for flexibility or rent-to-own for long-term solar mastery. The power is yours!

What is Solar-as-a-Service (SaaS) Again?

SaaS – a term traditionally used to define software built on to cloud computing – is another trick that we have up our sleeves. Think of SaaS as a home security system, wi-fi camera, baby monitor or advanced drone app that keeps you up-to-date with your most precious assets in real-time. Thus keeping an eye on your consumption, storage and output while you are away.

But Solar as a Service in this context, refers to exclusive solar system rental at a much lower monthly payment, but without the option to own it later. Simple, straightforward and without any funny little strings or disclaimers hanging around. It still belongs to us, but you can use it and we’ll still take care of it. Sounds like quite the deal doesn’t it?

To date, this is the most reliable and affordable option we have available. Yes, you won’t own it after the rental period expires – but you won’t have to worry about removing the solar system as we will organise the professionals to come through and safely disconnect the solar system when (and if) your contract ends.
