SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION COST & SAVINGS

Solar Panel Installation Cost & Savings

Home solar panel installation costs range from $14,000 to $35,000 on average (with the 30% federal tax credit taken into account), but that cost doesn’t tell the whole story. When compared to the cost of your current electricity bill, solar panels show thousands of dollars in savings over time – sometimes paying for themselves twice over! That’s on top of the increase in home value and environmental benefits of solar.

Maximizing Your Solar Investment

SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION COST BREAKDOWN

What goes into the cost of home solar? Let’s break it down! The bulk of the cost for a project will be split between the cost for the actual components (solar panels, inverter, mounting system, wiring, conduit, etc.) and labor costs. Additional costs include permit fees and local sales tax. Each of these will be itemized clearly on your personalized quote.

NO HIDDEN COSTS

We want you to be able to access the savings that come with a home solar installation. When you get a quote from Namaste Solar, you can be sure that your total solar panel installation cost will be clearly stated before you decide to say yes or no to solar. No last-minute changes or hidden fees.

FLEXIBLE PAYMENT OPTIONS

We offer multiple financing options through multiple lending partners, including $0-down financing. With a solar loan, homeowners often see fixed monthly payments that are comparable to their previous electric bills, all while building equity in their solar system instead of paying money out to the utility company.

AMICUS SOLAR COOPERATIVE

As a member of the Amicus Solar Cooperative, Namaste Solar is able to offer competitive pricing by pooling the buying power of over 70 independent solar providers from across the country. This is how we keep up with the national companies and maintain competitive solar panel installation costs without sacrificing quality.

SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION COSTS & BENEFITS

There are many ways to slice and dice the economic benefits of solar. One way to assess the value of solar is calculating the payback period (how long it takes for a solar install to pay for itself) by taking the overall system price and dividing it by the average projected solar savings each year. For example, if your total solar panel installation cost is $28,000 and you’re projected to save about $2,000 a year, then your payback period would be 14 years (an average payback period here in Colorado).

Another way to look at the return on your solar panel installation cost is to calculate your annual rate of return. If you have a 14-year payback period, you are getting 1/14th of your investment back each year or a 7% annual return. That’s excellent for a return on a low-risk investment option! And remember… any solar savings after those 14 years go straight into your pocket! No capital gain taxes, no delay, and low risk.

Namaste Solar did great job installing my solar system. I had several companies I was looking at and they were very easy to work with, honest and helpful. I would highly recommend them.
We couldn’t be happier with Namaste and our new solar panels! From the initial consult to the installation, everything went super smoothly and everyone was helpful and friendly. We’ve had less than ideal experiences with other contractors, and were pleasantly surprised with how awesome it was to work with Namaste!! Highly recommend this company
