SUNworks Offers Leasing or Purchasing Options for Solar on New Homes


SUNworks, a division of Solar3D, announces it will offer solar for new homes in a California community. The company says its offering is unique in providing the option to either lease or purchase the solar systems.


Solar on new homes has become an everyday occurrence in the U.S., no longer always newsworthy. But there are still new developments (no pun intended) when it comes to solar offering  in new home developments.

Solar provider Solar3D, Inc. (OTCQB: SLTD), the developer of a proprietary high-efficiency solar cell, just announced that its SUNworks Division has formally entered into the new homes market by partnering with Atkinson Homes.

What’s different about this? SUNworks will offer homebuyers within the Heartland Homes Community in California an option to either purchase or lease their solar systems. The company says this offering is unusual within the solar industry, where most solar integrators offer only leased systems to new home buyers.

“We believe that this unique offering by SUNworks provides a better solution for our development and our buyers,” said Virgil Atkinson, President of Atkinson Construction & Development. “We seek to offer our new home buyers a great offering, with our quality constructions and the option to purchase or lease a SUNworks custom solar system.”

“SUNworks was selected for the job because of its commitment to quality,” stated Abe Emard, CEO of SUNworks. “The partnership between Atkinson Homes and SUNworks to complete 200 homes complements our residential retrofit division nicely. We expect our New Home Solar Division to grow exponentially over the next few years and potentially become one of the largest residential divisions within the sector.”
