How much does a solar panel system cost?

This is the question that we get from everyone. We know that solar prices have been going down lately as solar technology is developing and improving. But just how much does it cost to go solar? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to give to someone. Every home is different, so even though the cost to go solar is at low price for everyone, it is going to be different for each homeowner. This is why we offer a free solar analysis to EVERYONE. A solar analysis is where we calculate the cost for you to go solar and how much you will save by going solar.

How do we calculate the price?

Here are the steps that we go through when figuring out how much solar will cost for you:

1. How much power do you consume?

The first thing we look at is how much power you have used throughout the past year. To complete this step, we will ask you for copies of your electric bills for the past 12 months. We use this to figure out the exact amount of energy your home consumes.

2. How much roof space do you have?

At this step we will look at how much space you have on your roof for solar panels. This includes looking to see if there are any trees or other objects that will block the sun from getting to your solar panels. We will also look at whether your home is south-, east-, or west-facing, as this can affect how much sun will reach your solar panels.

3. How many panels do you need?

After looking at how much energy your home uses and how much sunlight your panels will be getting, we can figure out how many panels you will need. We determine how big your solar system will need to be in order to produce the energy that your home needs. Our proposal team will be able to build a proposal that will show how many panels you need and where they will need to placed to receive the best amount of sunlight.

4. Your cost and savings

At this point we will have the price for you to go solar! We will also be able to tell you how much you will be saving every month from your electrical bill. You will save money every month as your solar payment will replace your electrical bill.

The way to energy ownership

Looking at the total amount of a solar system can be overwhelming, but it is like looking at the total price of a car or home. It seems like a huge price, but when it is broken up into monthly payments then it is more manageable. You can read more about solar financing options here.

What are my solar panel financing options?

Right now, you are paying a certain amount to your electrical company every month in order to have energy in your homes. Your utility company can raise those monthly payments at any time and you don’t have any control over it. By going solar, you will still have monthly payments, but instead of those payments going to your utility company, they will be paying off your solar system. The best part is that those payments will never increase and eventually they will be paid off. When that happens you will have complete ownership of your energy.
