Sometimes you need to go deeper on a very specific topic; that's what this course is all about. The video lessons are available immediately after you enroll. For many, that's going to be all you need. For those who have burning questions they'd like to ask, or are looking to have a more detailed discussion about solar leases, then you're going to love the discussion board. You can post an introduction and questions there any time, but your instructor will be plugged in and responding during the official course dates. So get ready to ask some tough questions and we'll have ourselves a Facebook-style chat!
This is a free course. We take pride in our free courses, but keep in mind that this is only a taste of what we do in a full HeatSpring course. For this course you can use the discussion board to interact with other students and ask questions. You will have access to all of the online materials for a full year. Contact Tom McCormack, your Student Advocate, if you have questions. Please review the orientation materials and introduce yourself on the discussion board.
In this 30-minute discussion, learn if your business should offer a solar lease, what will make you successful when offering a solar lease, if offering a lease will impact your margins and profits, and if new solar companies should offer a lease or focus on cash customers. This course is SELF-PACED, so you don't have to be logged in at any specific time. Instructors will answer questions via the discussion board during the specified course dates, but you'll have access to all of the course materials for an additional 120 days.
