"What they do is look at your home from satellite images then tell you if your home is viable for solar panels. Ours they tell us is not. However they can see the roof of our home is in full sun in summer. What they don't get is the trees around our home are mostly deciduous and therefore the roof is in full sunlight in the winter too. I'll keep trying my best to get one of these companies to possibly put up solar panels."

Yeah, "trying" to get a leased system is only one option. Pay it forward and buy your own system, no middleman just you taking responsibility for your own generation system.

"Our old one was installed during Jimmy Carter's presidency when there were the first financial incentives for installing solar. Ronald Reagan ended that. Jimmy Carter installed solar panels on the White House. Ronald Reagan tore them down."

Ronald Reagan removed the leaky solar hot water panels from the leaky Whitehouse roof so the roof could be repaired. The original panels were donated to a college that is still using them to heat water in the Cafeteria. George 'W' Bush signed off on installation of solar hot water and solar PV on the Whitehouse grounds. The Obamas are now enjoying the solar hot water heated pool and some electricity generated by the sun.
