Hi there JRodrig,
Great question! Lots of people ask us about solar as a retirement strategy, so we've written a piece on the topic: "Solar power as a retirement investment strategy".
That article should help you clear up most questions and uncertainties that you may have about going solar, so definitely check it out.
To answer your questions in brief: Yes, going solar can definitely save you money into your retirement, whether you purchase your system or you lease it. However, if you have no tax liability (and therefore can't take advantage of the federal Investment Tax Credit), it might make more financial sense for you to go solar with a lease. Again, you can read more on this topic in our article: "Should you buy or lease your solar panel system?"
We hope you find this helpful. And don't forget to compare your options on our Solar Marketplace!
