When it comes to putting solar panels on your roof or on the ground by your home there are more financing options than just paying for the entire system up front. If your buy a new house for example, some builders are providing options to finance the entire solar energy system as part of your mortgage payment. If you are putting solar on a existing home or if your builder does not offer such a mortgage option there are still other ways to go.
