Many people believe that going solar is expensive, but if you can afford to pay your electricity bill you can afford to go solar.
While that number varies based on several factors, in 2018, the average installed residential project cost (prior to state and federal incentives) was $25,000.
In general, solar panels are very durable and capable of withstanding snow, wind, and hail. The various components of your solar power system will need to be replaced at different times, but your system should continue to generate electricity for 25 to 35 years.
South-facing roofs with little or no shade and enough space to fit a system are ideal for installing solar. However, in many cases there are workarounds if your home doesn’t have the ideal solar roof.
