Going solar in the Roanoke area has become more affordable over time.
With advances in technology, going solar in Roanoke has become more affordable over time. The cost of a solar system depends on a few other factors as well: your property, electricity usage and energy goals for the future. Our solar representatives can work with you to come up with an individualized solution that addresses your home’s particular energy needs, down to how many solar panels will be needed for your home.
Calculating Your Solar Panel Cost
Since every home is different, it’s hard to calculate an average cost of solar panels. Each residential solar system we install has been designed to best meet that home’s specific energy requirements. You can, however, estimate the cost of solar panels by using dollars per watt.
Solar production is measured in watts, which show how much energy your home goes through. So you’ll be able to tell exactly how much electricity is generated by your solar panels, setting you up to use less energy from the grid.
How many panels are needed for your Roanoke home comes down to the number of watts typically used. Once that number is found, our team can create a personalized solar solution for your home. The number of solar panels your home requires plus installation costs will cover your overall cost for going solar.
