Solar Loans Now Available!
Solar Loan Financing
WPCCU is committed to helping cut carbon pollution by advancing solar deployment and energy efficiency. We partner with quality-driven solar installers and provide competitive low rate solar loans to accommodate your budget.
Everyone is doing it! Over 750,000 Californians are reaping all of the benefits of solar ownership including: lower cost of electricity, going green, and feeling good about making the world a better place for generations to come. By going green, you'll lower your cost of electricity. You become part of the solution - you're no longer a consumer, you're a producer.
Many homeowners who are interested in going solar aren’t sure whether they can afford it and may not be aware that they can finance a new home solar system. Solar financing helps homeowners affordably pay for solar, while potentially paying less for electricity than under their current, traditional utility plan. As a result, not only will homeowners help the environment, but they save money, too.
WPCCU provides members with a way to go solar with a fixed rate loan as low as 3.99% APR* for up to 20 years. A solar loan allows you to borrow money to buy your solar system outright. Unlike a lease, once you pay off the loan you own the system and can benefit from its electricity generation for as long as your system lasts.
Learn more about the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)?
The federal solar ITC allows qualified U.S. homeowners who purchase solar energy systems to claim a 30 percent credit on their federal income taxes in the year they buy their systems.2 Congress renewed the ITC in 2016, but it may not be around forever as federal policies change. Moreover, it is set to decrease over time, so if you’re thinking about solar, you should consider it now.
