The two most common ways to go solar

The decision to go solar is a big one, and you no doubt have questions. What program should I choose? What are the costs? What are the short-term and long-term savings? Zing Solar has the answers and we understand that one option may not be right for everyone. There are many ways to go solar, but we’ll highlight the two most common ways below: A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) that requires $0 down, and a Solar Hardware Purchase that will have the utility companies paying you in the long run.

Determining which plan is right for you is very dependent on your specific needs, but there are some general guidelines that can get you started. The Power Purchase Agreement has the advantages of all-inclusive maintenance and no equipment or installations costs. A solar hardware purchase means assuming more risk and a larger investment, but the long-term payoff may be higher. Our energy consultants are experts in all the available programs and will help guide you to the best solution for your needs.

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)Solar Hardware Purchase

Go solar for $0 down

If you’ve ever thought about going solar, but were waiting for that perfect offer—well, here it is. With a Power Purchase Agreement you can go solar for $0 down with nothing to buy. There’s no risk to you, only savings of 20-30% on your utility bill each month with even bigger savings as energy costs continue to rise. Take control of one of your largest monthly bills and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a guaranteed, all-inclusive rate. The time to go solar is now…not after energy rates have risen even higher.

Protect yourself from rising energy costs

The utility companies have made it no secret that energy costs are only going to rise—up to 40% in the next five years alone by most estimates. Solar energy gives you the power to safeguard yourself from these rising energy costs by locking in a low, guaranteed rate. It’s time to start enjoying clean, renewable energy that saves you money. Once you flip the switch to go solar, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!

Eliminate your electric bill entirely

Imagine never paying another electric bill. Now imagine the electric company paying you for the extra solar power you produce. Sound too good to be true? With our Solar Hardware Purchase plan, this dream can easily become a reality.

While this option requires a large initial investment, it is one of the only ways you can become completely energy independent and eventually start profiting from the excess solar power you produce.

Well, what impressed me most was that I could put solar on the house and it not cost me a dime. There was no out-of-pocket expense. Zing paid for all the equipment that went on the roof. I didn’t have a dime out of my pocket.

You guys took care of all the permits, to care of all the work, the installation, even the final paperwork came with a pre-stamped envelope.

What I like about the Power Purchase Agreement was that Zing owns the panels, Zing installs the panels, maintains them, and we had had to pay absolutely nothing for it.

Well, I’m very impressed with Zing Solar because of the fact that they’ve been professional, they’ve been honest, they’ve been upfront, they kept me posted every inch of the way, and they completed what they promised.

My rate is lower than what PNM, my electric company, was charging me, and I’m locked in at that rate.

For me and seeing what was going on, I thought competent and reliable. I mean, they made sure that what they did and installed was going to be corrected. And they did not leave until that was reassured. I like that.

So we’re very happy with signing up with Zing because we calculated it out to be over $50 that we’re saving on our electric bill to start with. And with all the rate increases and summer coming, it’s going to add up real fast. Because we’re a small family trying to start in this economy, any bit of money you save is good money.

We put the house on the market and I had my first offer in 24 hours.

If I had actually done this months ago, then I would’ve saved approximately $57 a month. The process of actually putting the panels on the roof went very quickly. They were in and out in no time. Very professional.

What resonated with me was no cost. No cost to me. You guys absorb all the cost, the installation, the maintenance, and then I lock in at a low rate. So for me it was perfect plan. I knew right away that I was going to sign on the dotted line.

Everybody that I’ve dealt with has always been honest, open, and upfront. And when you feel that you can trust the people that you’re working, that’s the kind of relationship that you want to have.
