Commercial Solar Panel Leasing

It is possible for eligible businesses and commercial properties to engage in commercial solar panel leasing to help with the cost of installing a commercial sized solar power system that will generate its own electricity and save the business money long term.

Commercial solar panel leasing is provided by the Solar Finance Division of Asset Partners and if you are interested in leasing solar panels for your office, Solar Power Direct can provide the initial cost estimate and check the eligibility of your business and/or property.

  2. Director must own a property of some sort – whether in the business name or privately

The repayments calculated by us are an estimate and once you decide to proceed, then Solar finance comes on board and finalises all the costs and completes the necessary paperwork.
