What are the purchasing options?
Should you decide to buy outright you will gain the maximum return on your property as well as increasing its value, the investment should be paid back in 9 years and you can expect you ROI (rate of investment) to be 9-11%. You could also lease/loan, which would give you the immediate benefit of solar electricity without the up front capital. With the benefit of flexible terms and pay back options the ROI would be 6-7%.
