More customers are opting for loans over leases.
The way people are getting solar panels installed in their homes is going through a rapid change.
SolarCity, along with similar solar companies, supplied 56% of home solar panels last year. This year, they may do just 50% in 2016, the newspaper reported, citing figures from GTM Research.
The Journal reported that solar panel leases, which were 72% of sales in 2014, are now expected to drop to only 48% by 2017 as more consumers buy them instead.
