Calculating Your Solar Panel Cost

Because we custom make our solar panel systems, the average cost of solar panels is hard to establish. However, you can roughly calculate the cost of your solar panel system by determining how much energy your home currently uses in watts. Solar production is also measured in watts, so we’ll be able to get a feel for how much you could potentially reduce your grid electricity intake through solar production.

Once we’ve established roughly how many solar panels will help you meet your home’s energy needs and your potential savings goals, our solar experts will design a custom solar solution for your home. The number of solar panels needed to best fit your home is added to the cost of installation to provide you with your overall cost for going solar.
