About Cash Payments

Cash Payment Process


If you choose to pay for your solar system in cash, please understand the payment breakdown and refer to the FAQ section below if you have any questions.


Payment Breakdown:

  • $1,000 Deposit: Better Earth collects a deposit when you sign up to go solar.
  • 90% of the Total Balance is Due at Installation: When your solar installation is complete, you will be billed for 90% of the project balance.
  • Final 10% Balance is Due After Inspection Approval: The last 10% is due after your system has been inspected and approved by your local building department.


What Are The Acceptable Payment Methods?

  • We accept ACH (virtual checking account) payments from a checking or savings account.
  • We will typically collect your ACH information as a part of the sign-up process by entering this information into our Installation Agreement.
  • While Better Earth will always protect your sensitive information, If you are not comfortable entering this information, we can send you an electronic invoice.

Is The Down Payment Refundable?

  • Yes, the $1,000 down payment is refundable. If you need a refund, please email us at ap@betterearth.solar.

How Does Payment Work If I Am Getting A New Roof With My Solar Project?

  • If you're paying in cash for both your solar and roof, you will make payments for both.
  • The payment schedule will be the same as for a solar-only project: $1,000 down, 90% of the remaining amount due at installation, and the final 10% due after inspection approval.

What If I Cannot Find The Invoice In My Email?

  • If you cannot find the invoice in your email, please contact your Project Manager and they will be able to assist you.
  • You can find your Project Managers contact information in your Customer Portal.
