Thinking about solar as a source of energy to meet your needs?

06/10/2019

Deciding to invest in solar facilities is a big decision and depends on you having accurate information about what that investment may mean in terms of your overall energy costs.

Contact Entergy Arkansas to be sure you know the facts before signing a long-term contract.  We can provide you information about your account that should give you a better understanding of your bill and how it may change if you buy or lease solar.

You may want to consider these details before you sign any contract:

  1. Are any promises about pricing that have been made to me by the vendor clearly spelled out in the contract?
  2. Does the contract state that my pricing will change over time?
  3. How many years is the contract for? What does the contract say will happen if I want out of the contract before then?
  4. Do I pay for power produced that is more than I require?
  5. What happens if one or more of my accounts does not need power for some reason?
  6. Do I get the Renewable Energy Credits associated with the facility?
  7. Do I have a say in the assignment of the agreement to another party if in the future the solar company wants out of the contract? Do I have the right to assign the contract like if I sell my home or business?
  8. How do I handle disputes with the solar company?
