Solar and Battery Power Systems
An average residential rooftop solar power system is about 5 kW in capacity for a total installed price of about $13,000. 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 $900 to $1,400 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 $2,600 to $2,200 per kilowatt (kW) respectively. Economy-of-scale reduces the price per watt for larger systems.
In most cases, we recommend a minimum capacity of 4 kW of solar, which starts at $10,000 - $11,000. System capacity is dependent on roof space and is often limited to about 8 to 12 kW on a typical roof.
Battery power systems are considered separately and can be used with or without solar power (but only eligible for the tax credit when paired with solar). Our most popular whole-home battery power system starts at around $12,000 to $13,000 depending on the installation and wiring requirements.
Our estimates do not include the federal tax credit, as this is something you get to claim afterward. In 2022, the tax credit amount is 26% of the total solar installation price and any credit balance will carry over to the following years until fully utilized (see IRS form 5695 to learn more). Battery systems are eligible for the tax credit when combined with solar power.
