What happens at the end of the lease term?
When the lease reaches its scheduled end of the lease term, you may extend the lease term or request the removal of the system.

Can I remodel or update my roof during the term of my lease?
Yes. You must provide at least 15 days prior notice to SunPower of intent to repair or improve the premises. We will work with you to determine how we can best protect and secure the system before repairs or improvements. If we need to remove and reinstall the system after the repairs or improvements are complete, the associated costs will be at your expense.
