Hi there - I understand with a solar lease that the company installs, but owns the panels that are put on your rooftop.  You get the solar electricity generated by the panels at a fraction of the cost of grid-based electricity.  At the end of the lease, you may have the option to purchase the panels at a reduced cost.  Its a great way to go solar without the up-front investment.  Check out SunRun.com to see if they are in your area and what they can tell you.  I'm not affiliated with them, but I understand they have a good solar lease program.  Good luck.

Many studies have documented this increase in value.  Among several, see ICF Consulting (“Evidence of Rational Market Valuations for Home Energy Efficiency,”www.icfi.com/Markets/Community_Development/doc_fi... that concluded that every $1 reduction in annual energy costs would increase a home’s value by $20.73.

I totally hear you!  And yes, they can make the panels more affordable.  Just in the past year, prices have been cut in 1/2.  You could look into solar panel leasing options - no $$ down and you save more on your electricity bill than the monthly fee costs.  In the meantime, let's keep pushing local government to adopt building codes that require use of panels in sunny areas as you note.
