How do I know a ballpark price of what a solar array will costs without a lot of time and energy? There are many things that factor into the total cost of a solar array for your home or business. Probably the top two factors are Annual Electric usage and Available sunlight resource at potential solar location. The other factor is budget, and don’t forget, there is no shame in a solar array that covers only a portion of your electric bill.
When a solar array is designed, it is crucial to have a clear understanding of your net metering laws, as well as the expected annual future electric usage (12 months history is usually a starting point). Also, an analysis of your roof orientation, tilt, and any shading concerns are important for us to be able to guarantee annual production. With these factors, we are able to accurately model annual production, and with that provide a quote and a guaranteed production on that system.
So how much does a solar array cost? Often home solar arrays are in the range of $20,000 to $50,000 upfront cost, without rebates and credits taken off the price. Agricultural and Commercial solar arrays are often in the $100,000 to $500,000 range. Business have credits and rebates as well as an accelerated depreciation schedule.
