    For example…

    System Size: 10 watts per square foot is a conservative estimate of the solar array size your property can accommodate. This takes into account possible obstructions where solar cannot be built and it does not include a premium, more energy-dense panel. As a result, a 900 sq. ft. roof often allows for at least a 9,000 watt system.

    Costs: This assumes there are no upgrades required for the roof, the rafters, or the electrical, such as a new breaker box. Extensive drywall work is also determined on site and is not included here. It also doesn’t include Community Solar charges, loan terms, or a crane for the installation, all of which we build into our final quotes where necessary. This is not a price for the most premium panels we can get our hands on. For a refined estimate, please get in touch and request a quote. Fill out the form below and we’ll contact you right away!
