Tesla now offers customers in six states the opportunity to rent solar panels with no long-term contracts or installation fees. Customers who live in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New Mexico and use a participating utility company, can choose a small system, 3.8 kW at $50/month, a medium system, 7.6 kW at $100/month, or a large system, 11.4 kW at $150/month. The monthly fee covers the cost of panels, other hardware, installation, support, and maintenance.
While customers may increase or decrease their system size or cancel the rental at any time, a $1,500 removal fee will be charged for downsizing or cancelation and roof restoration. Contracts can be transferred, if a customer sells their home. Inhabitat, Tesla
