Solar System Lease from Streamline Solar

Does anyone know anything about Streamline Solar's leases in NW Arizona? I'm new to this and am considering one of their leases.

    I think with solar, leases are to be avoided. The company gets the benefits, homeowner gets the leftovers

    Here is a good place to start thinking about pros and cons of a SL.  Full article
    • Think of your sun-soaked roof as an asset that solar leasing companies want to get their hands on. The more electricity your panels produce, the more money these companies make.
    • Consider a solar lease as you would any major purchase: Be discriminating – never mind the fact that you may pay nothing up-front.
    • Compare a wide variety of quotes, then work the companies off one another to try to get a better deal. There are now numerous companies offering solar leasing deals, and competing for your business. Use this to your advantage.
    • Look into a solar loan as an alternative to a solar lease. Solar loans present may of the same benefits as a solar lease – except that you will own the system when the loan is paid off.
    • Have money in the bank? Consider purchasing a solar system. Up-front puchase of a solar system is almost always the best option for those who can afford it. (Read more about purchasing vs leasing your solar system.)
