Installing a solar energy system at your home or small business will reduce your carbon footprint and lead to significant energy savings—both short-term and long-term. But just how much does solar cost?
The cost of solar depends—on your property’s size, how much energy you typically use, and how much power you want to generate. We can provide a complimentary custom estimate based on a few simple questions—contact us today to learn more.
Looking for a ballpark estimate? Over the last 17 years, we’ve installed thousands of solar energy systems, so we can provide a good idea of what you’ll pay. For a standard three-bedroom home with good south-facing exposure and typical utility usage, most families can expect to spend about $20,000 for a solar energy system.
Of course, this cost does not include the generous federal solar tax credits and New York state solar incentives, which may cover up to 55% of the cost for your solar energy installation. Our team can help you document all the required paperwork for applying for these incentives, and all Solar Dad & Sons installations include a 10-year warranty on all parts and labor. Additionally, you may see your home value increase as a result of your solar energy installation.
Curious what factors can influence your solar energy cost? Estimates can vary depending on the following:
- Amount of energy you plan on generating
- Square footage
- Roof size and pitch
- Orientation and sun exposure (south-facing is always best)
- Size and number of PV panels installed
Additionally, your solar energy costs will vary depending on how you plan to use the energy and what you intend to power. A simple solar hot water or solar heating system may be less costly than a more comprehensive system involving solar pool heating or battery backups.
