U.S. Residential Solar Financing 2016-2021

by Nicole Litvak

After four straight years of growth topping 50 percent, the U.S. residential solar market is facing new challenges and will see a tapered growth rate of 16 percent in 2016. Not slowing, however, are solar loans and cash sales. In 2017, direct ownership will overtake third-party ownership as more customers choose to purchase, rather than lease, their panels. Regardless of financing type, there are still bumps in the road ahead that are already leading to changes in business models and the competitive landscape of residential solar providers.
