THE COST OF SOLAR PANELS IN USA
One of the most important questions we’re asked from people considering installing solar is, How much does solar cost?
The costs of solar panels and installation vary based on their make and model as well as labor costs. The latter will depend on factors like the complexity of your roof, conduit attic runs, backup power, and your location. That’s why we offer a free custom quote for every customer based on your home or business and your energy needs.
On average, the cost of solar panels in US for 1 Solar Solution customers is just over $10,000 for a 9 kilowatt (kW) residential 1 Solar Solution system, after local rebates and tax credits (more on that below). That cost includes parts (solar panels, inverters, mounting equipment, conduit, and other components) and installation labor, as well as project management, including HOA approvals, permitting, and inspections. The cost of solar panels in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas vary slightly, but the estimate above should give you a general idea.
Keep in mind that the purchase price is not the same thing as the cost of ownership, especially when you consider the cost of not going solar. You are already paying to rent electricity from your utility. Becoming the owner of a solar energy system to make your own power is a smart financial investment.
Solar power is a low-risk, high-return investment if you have the cash to purchase it outright. Otherwise, you can finance the system to achieve a monthly payment that is cash-flow neutral from day one. We offer interest rates as low as 1.49 percent with $0 down payment options.
