Santa Clara, CA – Today, American Solar Direct (ASD) announced that it has opened a regional office in Santa Clara. Not only has the new office created 15 jobs for Santa Clara, but it also offers a lease option for solar customers.
Geoff Atkins, Chief Marketing and Strategy officer of ASD says, “Customers pay a lease for their solar equipment and pay the marginal amount of difference back to their electricity company.” He adds that the monthly fee for solar equipment will be about $150 to $200 with a 20-year contract.
According to USA today, many homeowners intend to lease, rather than buy, solar panels as this offers the opportunity to use equipment with no upfront costs and without long-term pressure to maintain equipment.
