How is ‘Online solar investing’ different from buying stocks in publicly traded solar companies?
When you invest in a solar panel on Legends Solar, you own real solar panels, you’ll be entitled to all the cash they generate from selling electricity. The value and future financial returns of a solar company stock can zig-zag wildly and can be speculative.
With online solar investing on Legends, you’ll earn cash when the sun shines. So long as your panels continue to operate, your investment will earn cash. By purchasing real assets, instead of a small share of a large company, you’ll avoid some of the risks that publicly traded companies create.
