Lease is for 20 years if you sell the lease can be transferred. Right now our payment would be nearly the same as our xcel payment but that is just for two of us. If you have kids you will save more since your usage will be more. The best thing is to buy it, saves the most money but we have to buy a new heater and A/C unit this year too so we decided to pay for that and lease the solar.
Call them when you close and see what they can build for you. We are getting a 10K system since our roof is large enough and covered by the sun all day. Your system may be smaller depending on your home and location to the sun. You can not get a bigger one since that is the largest they will install.
