LightReach and TPO FAQ

LightReach Energy Plan is a Third Party Ownership (TPO) model where the solar system is not owned by the homeowner but by LightReach. Depending on the market, contracts may read as a Lease or a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). The plan offers predictability with guaranteed monthly payments for energy generated from the solar system for a whole year.

No, under the LightReach Energy Plan, the homeowner does not own the solar system. LightReach owns the system, and the homeowner pays for the energy generated through predictable monthly payments. This setup allows homeowners to enjoy solar benefits without the risks and responsibilities of ownership.

During the pricing phase, sales representatives will select a rate escalator of either 0.00%, 0.99%, 1.99%, or 2.99%. This percentage increase applies to the price per kilowatt-hour, resulting in an annual increase to the fixed monthly cost. These options provide a predictable and manageable cost over the 25-year agreement.

At the end of the 25-year term, the customer will have several options. They can choose to have LightReach remove the system at no cost, purchase the system at fair market value, extend the contract at a new rate, or, if no action is taken within 90 days, LightReach reserves the right to transfer ownership of the system to the homeowner as is.

In certain markets, the LightReach Energy Plan contracts will be presented as a Lease, while in others they will appear as a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). However, this does not affect the billing, payment process, or system pricing for the customer. The experience remains consistent regardless of the terminology used, which is mainly for legal categorization.

Every three years, the actual production of the solar system will be evaluated. If there’s a significant discrepancy from the initial estimates, the bill may be adjusted accordingly, as the pricing is based on production. This true-up process is expected to affect less than 4.5% of projects due to confidence in the initial manual design estimates.
