For a solar electric system, the cost depends on the size of the system and the ease of installation, with an average cost range of $6,000–$8,000 for each kilowatt (kW) of capacity, with an average size of 3 kW. However, incentives and tax credits can cover up to 80 percent of the cost.
A typical solar water heating system costs $6,500 to $10,000. Incentives and tax credits can offset up to 65 percent of the cost.
The best way to estimate what a system would cost you, and learn what incentives and tax credits you can claim, is to contact several Energy Trust solar trade ally contractors for a bid. All trade ally contractors attend trainings and are eligible to offer Energy Trust cash incentives.
