Recently, we started a new Facebook series that we’re calling: “Short Solar Questions with Long Solar Answers.”
Short Question #1: But what does going solar cost?!
Long Answer #1: The cost of purchasing and installing an on-grid solar energy system for your home varies greatly according to how much electricity you use, whether you want to cover all of your use, or just offset some of your bill, whether you’re on or off grid, and other factors such as how good your sun exposure is, which will impact how much solar you can produce, especially during peak use times.
With all of that in mind, however, you can estimate a solar energy system to range from about $15k to $30k. This is total cost, installed, with a warranty; whatever you spend qualifies for a 30% Federal Solar Tax Credit. With Mendocino Solar Service, your written solar energy proposal will be based on your usage and will show you just how much you will save by going solar–often many thousands of dollars over the life of the system.
With a SunPower Solar Lease you can pay zero down and replace your electricity bills with your lease payment, which in many cases will save you thousands of dollars over the lease period. Another option is Ygrene’s tax-deductible Property Assessed Clean Energy Financing.
