Understanding Solar Panel Prices

If you’ve done some research on the average cost of solar panel installation, but feel a little confused by what you’ve found, you’re not alone. It helps to first understand some of the terminologies commonly used. For example, prices are often broken down into dollars per watt. A watt is simply a standard measure of energy usage. However, solar panel output is often measured in kilowatts, which is equivalent to 1,000 watts. This means that having a 4 kW solar panel system installed at a price of $2.50 per watt would cost roughly $10,000.

Additional Factors

Determining the total cost of a solar panel project is not always straightforward, as it depends on many different factors including available tax credits, the unique position of your property, your energy goals, and more. It is also important to account for the fact that solar panels can increase your property value. At Energy Consultants Group, we provide comprehensive, certified property assessments that allow us to determine the exact cost of a project as well as what savings our clients can expect each month.
