Tesla’s solar sales model received another update last week when the company launched a subscription option for commercial applications.
The company launched an online portal that offers price comparisons with or without incentives, as well as the benefits of choosing a rental option.
Subscriptions start as low as 9.9 cents per kilowatt-hour for the 240 kW solar panels.
Tesla’s sales pitch for the subscription service:
Pay for what you generate every monthInstallation costs includedNo long term contractYour subscription can be cancelled anytimeYou can remove your system at any time for any reason. Tesla will charge you a nominal fee covering our costs to remove it, or you can find another qualified contractor to remove the system and return it to us.Support and warranty included Available in select utilities
Commercial systems can be purchased starting at $88,660 for 40kW solar panel arrays. Tesla says estimated returns of 8-12% a year from incentives would drop the price to $62,062 a year.
Tesla launched last month a rental service for its residential solar panel business for as little as $50 per month. There is no long-term contract or upfront installation cost.
