What's the deal with free installation?

The promise of FREE Installation is just plain false and you should run from any company that promises that. The cost of the installation is added to your monthly payment. That is why leases, PPA's or FREE Installation systems have long re-payment terms, up to 20 or 25 years, because they have to am mortise the cost over a longer period to show you any kind of savings.

Look at the total cost of your solar energy system, including principle and interest, and  look at your total savings. Chances are, most solar energy companies will not or cannot show you this information because you would run away.
