What’s the average cost for an installation of a solar panel system?
While residential solar panels have been around for decades, only recently has the price for them dropped to the point where they can be something more than just a curiosity for most consumers. To provide hard data, the cost to install solar panels has dropped by more than 70 percent since 2010, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.
As such, potential customers educating themselves on solar want to know if they’re getting a good deal for their money. A logical question they ask is: What’s a ballpark price I can expect to pay for a solar panel system? A similar question is, what’s my potential cost considering I have a 2,000-square foot home?
At Power Home Solar, our answer is that it’s hard to give anyone an average cost, because consumer needs and circumstances can vary greatly. In fact, that question triggers a handful of questions we need to ask customers:
- How much do you want your solar panels to offset the electricity you’re currently using from the power company?
- How much have you paid for your electricity in the past 12 months?
- Where do you want your panels on your roof, or would you rather have a ground-mounted system?
- Do you have trees or other objects that shade your home and make it less conducive for solar energy production?
As you can see, everyone’s situation can be unique, and thus it’s impossible to provide an average cost when everyone’s view of “average” is different. Two different families can live in the exact same size house, yet their power needs could vary considerably based on circumstances. That’s why power companies don’t charge for how big your home is, they charge based on how much power you use.
That’s also why Power Home Solar builds a proposal tailored specifically for your needs so there is no guesswork regarding your potential purchase.
