How Much Does Solar Cost?

The reason it is difficult to get a straight answer on the cost of solar is that there are quite a number of variables that affect the cost of a solar system, and there are two units of measure that both sound very similar.

So a little background and education is necessary in order to be able to compare apples to apples and know that you’re getting a good deal.

Two Units of Measure

Everything you buy has a price per some unit. Eggs are typically per dozen, milk per gallon, gold per ounce, and so on. With solar systems you can either look at the cost of the electricity that the solar system produces or the cost of the solar system itself.

Cost of electricity is measured in kilowatt hour (kW-hr) and the cost of the solar system is measured in Watt or thousand Watts which is a kilowatt.
