Moving home FAQs for sellers

What is solarcity’s success rate for agreement transfers?

When solarcity customers sell their homes, we usually transfer the solarZero agreement to the new homeowner. In a small number of cases our customers elect to relocate the solar system to their new home.

What are my options if I decide to sell my home?

When selling a home powered by solarZero, you have three options. No matter which you choose we are here to make sure the process is smooth and simple.

  • Transfer your agreement. By signing a transfer agreement, you can pass on your solarZero agreement and monthly payments to the new homeowner.
  • Pre-pay your agreement. Use the profits of selling your home to provide the new homeowner with energy services at no cost for the rest of the 20-year agreement. The system stays with the home and the new owner will only have to pay for grid power.
  • Move the system to your new home. You can keep your agreement going by relocating the panels to your new home. There will be a small fee to move the system.
