Bump on this thread.

Looking at the homes by Lennar at Cadence Park that has solar installed. What are the options available and what is the best use for consumers at the end of the day? I read elsewhere about buying solar @ $14K and getting a 30% tax credit but does that even pay for the life of the use vs getting the 20% discount if you lease instead?

Remember that when you sell a home, your buyer will need to get approved to take over the lease....just another thing that the builder will need to do.  Most of my new home buyers opted to purchase the solar.

The economics of solar always has a break-even point compared to leasing. Depends on your usage so clearly the closer you utilize to 100% of the solar generation then the faster you will payback your investment. My 10 kw system breaks even around 6 years.
