What's the Cost for a Solar Panel System?

Our Project Developers customize pricing for each solar array construction based on three elements: 


  • The electrical alterations needed for the the home to integrate solar
  • Modules, inverters, batteries, and other system components you may prefer 
  • Layout of the array, and whether it is a ground mounted or roof mounted system


The good news is the cost of going solar has come down 80% in the last decade, and it is affordable for the average working family. 

Projects typically require little money down with financing, or range from $20,000 -$60,000 before incentives.

We can quickly provide you sample pricing with just a small amount of information about your home and your electric bill.
