      financing your solar project

      We offer multiple financing options to Aurora Energy customers. 

      Cash Purchase

      The cash purchase option is for organizations that don’t require a long-term financing plan because they have enough capital to cover the equipment and installation costs upfront. Your organization will pay for the PV system, and the solar installation in increments as each stage of the project progresses. This method benefits your organization because you own the technology outright, allowing you to capitalize on the available tax benefits and subscriber organizations. 

      Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

      A PPA is a low-cost payment option whereby your organization doesn’t own the PV system outright. With a PPA, your business signs an agreement with a third-party seller who pays for the building, installation, and maintenance of the power system. PPA financing requires minimal upfront costs, with you paying for the electrical power over a set term, but your business doesn’t reap the full rewards of solar system ownership.

      C-PACE Financing

      Through C-PACE financing, businesses can own the solar hardware with low-cost payments set over a longer period. The fixed-rate payment amounts are determined through a voluntary tax assessment.

      your partner in sustainability

      As the U.S. Department of Energy continues to utilize America’s solar energy resources to help reinforce the growth of solar energy in the U.S., it’s the perfect time for commercial businesses to transition to sustainable energy. Aurora Energy’s comprehensive services support you from inception to installation. On average, Aurora Energy customers recoup a minimum of 10% ROI on their photovoltaic (PV) systems in the first five years. 

      Aurora Energy provides services for every stage of your commercial solar project. We start by performing diligent evaluations of the grid hookups on your property and the legal documentation for the property. Our project manager is the point of contact for your organization in the design phase, communicating with you about all aspects of the installation, including the permit drawings. We handle follow-ups with local permitting departments on your behalf. 

      The construction timeline for your solar system depends on the scale and complexity of the project. When it’s time for your solar system to be connected to your building’s power, a temporary power outage will be scheduled during off-work hours to avoid disrupting your business operations. 

      After installation, our knowledgeable team of solar professionals provide preventative maintenance services specifically for your system.
