Learn more about required solar panels.

*Consistent with California energy regulations, new homes must be equipped with solar panels. Solar panels are not included in the posted price, but may be leased for a monthly payment, or purchased for an additional cost that may be eligible for mortgage financing. The required size of the solar system depends on several factors, including, but not limited to, home size, local utility rates and climate zone. The installed solar system may reduce your monthly local electric utility company bill. For more information, see sales agent and Solar Energy System Addendum.

Estimated cost of an average-sized solar system:

  • Purchase:
    • Assumed terms: Conventional 30-year fixed rate mortgage
    • Estimated cost: $53-$61 per month (could be higher depending on interest rate)**
  • Lease:
    • Assumed terms: 20-year, zero-down lease program
    • Estimated cost: $114-$140 per month***

Monthly cost estimates vary depending on location of home, interest rate if system is purchased, capacity and output of system, if system is leased and other factors, and are subject to change without notice.

***Information provided by the Lessee - Sun Power Solar Energy Systems. Estimate is a range based on the energy production factors used to determine lease terms, compared to the system purchase cost financed in a system purchase. Actual lease cost will depend on the location of the home, number of panels in the system and the modelled energy output of the system.
