Solar and Battery Power Systems
An average residential rooftop solar power system is about 6 kW in capacity and has a total installed price of about $19,000. This basic system offers supplemental power to reduce grid-power usage. Systems can be two to three times this size (sometimes larger) to accommodate more power use by larger homes, for backup power requirements, and for off-grid homes.
Price-per-panel. Our solar installations (not including a battery system) average around $1,000 to $1,600 per solar panel overall, depending on the system size and if the solar array is roof- or ground-mounted.
Price-per-watt. Our most common rooftop solar installations, 4 kW to 8 kW, are in the range of $3,000 to $2,500 per kilowatt (kW) respectively. Larger systems generally have a lower price-per-watt.
In most cases, we recommend about 4 kW of solar as a starting point for an average home. Solar capacity is limited by the roof space, so we will also suggest a system based on a good fit for the roof. Ground-mounted systems are best for larger-sized systems, to be more cost-effective.
Very small solar arrays are sometimes practical, as long as the wiring requirements are not extensive, as wiring is a relatively fixed cost for either a small or larger installation.
Battery power systems are priced separately from the solar power system. Our most popular whole-home battery power system is approximately $12,000 to $13,000 depending on the installation and wiring requirements. Add a battery to your solar power system later if you prefer.
Federal Tax Credit
Our pricing/quotes do not include the federal investment tax credit, as this is something you get to claim when you do your taxes for the year of the solar/battery installation. The tax credit amount is 30% of the total installed price. The balance can carry over to the following years until fully utilized (see IRS form 5695 to learn more).
