Solarize Spring 2019 Pricing

Our lowest prices yet!

The cost of solar power depends on the number of panels installed and whether your site is suitable for rooftop solar or ground-mounted solar. Ground-mounted systems typically cost more. On average, rooftop solar panels cost between $10,000 – $25,000.

In addition to the campaign discounts, home and business owners can access the 30% federal tax credit and any local incentives, connect to affordable financing, and navigate the Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) market. For more information, visit our Incentives and Financing page.

A very small array of 3000 watts (3kW) – about 10 panels – should produce some $420 worth of electricity a year at today’s energy prices. At $2.52 per watt, the installation cost is $5,292 after the federal tax credit. If your current electric bill averages $120/mo, a 6000W (6kW) array should cover about 60% of that on a good site. A good site is critical. You want the array to face somewhat southerly and to be in full sun. Roofs can be great. Yards, fields, and parking lots work too. See more details below.
