How much does it cost?

  • One of the most common questions asked by members seeking information about installing solar is installation cost. It varies from company to company, and you should get several proposals to compare.

    Before applying any tax incentives, rebates, or other subsidies the prices range from $2.00 to $4.00 per watt. So, as an average, a 10 kW solar installation that is installed on a roof could cost around $20,000 before any incentives. This same size system would also on average produce about 15,000 kWh annually or 1,250 per month.
