Getting a solar loan proves to be the best option for many homeowners.  Not only can you immediately start paying less on your monthly utility bill, but you will notice your savings more and more every year. The reason?  While utility rates rapidly clime every year, your loan payment stays exactly the same for the duration of your loan.  This means you will be paying half the price that your neighbor is paying for the same amount of energy.  The example figure below shows the timeline of a 20 year loan
