Financing Solutions

Available financing options: Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Lease, Rental 

PPA: A power purchase agreement allows customers to lock in an electric rate for a period of 5 to 20 years, delivering predictable costs and significant savings without the upfront capital purchase. Capstone Energy Finance monitors and maintains the systems and customers only pay for the electricity that is produced. 

Lease: Allows customers to conserve capital and reduce operating expenses with low fixed monthly payments. Leases may cover up to 100% of the project cost and lease terms ranging 5-10 years are available. Maintenance is managed by Capstone Energy Finance.

Rental: Fixed monthly payments for those who prefer not to buy. Maintenance is managed by Capstone Energy Finance as part of the rental agreement.

Capstone Energy Finance will work with you to customize a financing solution so that you only pay for the energy you use, not the equipment used to produce it.
