So you’re doing some research into the cost of solar energy?

Fantastic, here’s the main thing you need to understand about how we size and price solar systems. It’s not a cookie-cutter answer. We can’t just say solar is going to cost X for your home because every home is different.

Even even if you had two identical homes next to each other, those 2 homes could have very different electricity needs. Maybe one home has a hot tub and a heated pool and, a 10-foot boa constrictor that requires heat lamps. 24/7.

That home is obviously going to use more energy and more electricity than an identical home next to it right?

So, to answer this question for you, I want to show you an actual example to give you an idea of how solar systems are priced right this is a home in Texas.

Watch this video to see exactly how we took the information from this homeowner’s utility bill to determine how many solar panels his home would require based on his energy needs. Then how we built the system virtually maximizing sun exposure and then determined the cost of his system, his federal tax credit, and his monthly payments for financing his solar system.

So you saw in the video that the homeowner qualified for a $12,000 federal tax credit, which was 30% of the cost of the solar system. Now, he could apply the tax credit to his monthly payments to reduce his monthly bill, or he could pay a little more per month and put the $12,000 check from the government directly into his own pocket. Pretty cool, right?

Despite the initial investment, the benefits of switching to solar energy are numerous. One of the main advantages is the potential for long-term cost savings. While the initial investment may be higher, solar panels have a long lifespan and can potentially generate enough energy to offset the cost of the system over time. In fact, according to a study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, homeowners with solar panels installed can save an average of $50 to $100 per month on their energy bills.

Another benefit of a solar energy system is the potential to generate excess energy that can be sold back to the grid. In some cases, homeowners may even be able to generate enough excess energy to receive a credit on their energy bills. This is known as net metering. Check out our blog and video that answers the question, what is net metering?

Despite the advantages, it’s important to consider the true cost of a solar energy system before making the investment. While the potential cost savings are significant, it’s important to factor in the upfront costs of purchasing and installing the system.

While the true cost of solar panels can be significant, the long-term benefits of a solar energy system are undeniable. By carefully considering the initial investment and ongoing maintenance costs, homeowners can make an informed decision about whether a solar energy system is right for them. With the potential for significant cost savings and environmental benefits, a solar energy system is definitely worth considering for those looking to make the switch to renewable energy.

A residential solar system is a great way to reduce your energy costs while doing something positive for your community and the planet. However, when a home solar system is not designed and sold with integrity, it can have a tremendous negative financial impact on the homeowner.

Throughout The Definitive Guide to Residential Solar in the U.S., you will discover the many ways that homeowners have been taken advantage of by smooth-talking solar sales reps. Only to find out, often many months or years after they signed an ironclad contract, that their home solar system is not producing anywhere close to the amount of energy that they were told it would. Many of these homeowners found themselves having to pay a monthly solar bill on top of an electric bill, that they were told would vanish after installing solar panels. This is the unfortunate reality for thousands of solar pioneers and it is the #1 reason that residential solar deserves the bad reputation it has in many markets across the U.S.
