How to Calculate the Cost of a Solar Panel System

How to Calculate the Cost of a Solar Panel System

We often get asked how much it would cost to install a solar panel system. It actually varies based on whether rebates, tax credits and incentives are available to you. Incentives can lower the price by 30 percent or more. With no incentives, the cost can go as high as $15,000 for a 4kW solar system. The total cost of a solar system goes beyond the price of solar panels. A number of other components such as the racking, wiring, inverter and solar monitor are also calculated.
