The subscription type governs how you pay an provider for subscribing to their community solar installation. The subscription type you choose can influence your expected savings and the savings certainty.
For pay-as-you-go subscription types, providers require a long-term agreement, typically around 25 years. This allows them to finance the solar power installations. Providers offer several ways to exit the agreement early at no or low cost.
Some subscription agreements have additional fees beyond those associated with the subscription type (e.g., maintenance fee for pre-pay subscription type, processing fee for credit card payment). We ask providers to indicate any additional fees as part of their quote, but you should verify that your subscriber agreement only contains the fees you expect it to.
The solar installation may not be built yet. Be sure to review when the installation is expected to open, what happens if it opens at a different time, and what happens if it doesn’t open at all.
Providers are not able to provide all the terms in their quotes through SolarMatch, so it’s important to review the subscriber agreement in detail. Additional terms may cover data privacy, notice provisions, or terms about when the installation is out of service.
