Options if you don't own your own home
Not owning your own home is often seen as a barrier to installing solar. If that’s the case, here are some options
Negotiate with the landlord
If you are on a long-term lease you could discuss installing solar with your landlord. As a part of your lease you could include clauses about the installation and maintenance of the solar system.
Power Purchase Agreements for renters
If you are on a long term lease and your landlord agrees to have solar installed but you can’t afford the up-front cost, there are other options available to finance the system. You may be able to explore a power purchase agreement (PPA).
If you are unable to install solar but want to source your electricity from renewable sources you could explore GreenPower.
You consider investing in community solar projects which provide financial returns and support community environmental initiatives.
