This offer feels too good to be true. Is it?

I've recently received an offer from Vivint to put solar panels on my home at no charge, as long as I buy electricity from them at a certain (good) rate. I also must maintain a relationship with my current electricity carrier.
They are paying for and guaranteeing the solar panels. Why do I not feel good about this? I feel good about the tech, but I'm concerned about my home's resale and how this affects it. Naturally, they have good tales to tell, but I need an outside opinion. I won't own the panels and neither will the next owner. This seems....odd.
What would you do? Any experience with Vivint solar?
