Anybody know anything about Citizenre? Basically it's a company that's planning on renting out solar panels. They take a deposit and then take care of the installation, maintenance, upgrades if necessary, etc. You pay a flat rate for the electricity provided by the solar system, just like to a regular utility provider, except the rate stays frozen as long as your contract lasts.
Theoretically in think it's a great idea. I've read a lot of people complaining that Citizenre won't be able to meet their promises - basically that they won't be able to produce the number of solar panels they claim they'll be able to. The company is still starting up and is very mysterious and hush-hush about its solar panel production facility, which is supposedly under construction.
Personally it doesn't matter much to me either way. If it works then it's a great deal, and if it doesn't, it won't effect me because I can't afford to buy my own solar panels anyway, and they don't ask for any money until the $500 deposit prior to installation.
I'm curious if anybody knows anything about this company and the likelihood that it will succeed or collapse.
