"Honda and Acura customers and dealerships will be able to install solar power with little or no upfront cost, depending on the customer's choice of plans. Customers will be given a choice to pre-pay for their solar electricity or pay a monthly payment that will be lower than the cost of their current utility bill, with insurance, repairs and monitoring service included," according to the company.
Customers in SolarCity's 14-state area are eligible: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington. Interested customers can visit www.HondaSolarCity.com and get a free web or phone consultation.
The total cost of installation and equipment is typically $10,000 to $20,000 for a residential solar system, the spokesman said."
