Solar systems range from $10,000 to $30,000, influenced by size, equipment, and location. Thankfully, decreasing solar costs, government incentives, and energy bill savings make it a more affordable venture for many.

Options include:


Cash upfront

Loans from financial institutions

Leasing the system

Power purchase agreements (PPA), where you buy generated electricity at a fixed rate.

Evaluate your financial scenario and perhaps consult a financial advisor for the best fit.

Why opt for solar energy?

Switching to solar offers monetary savings, promotes cleaner air, and taps into a boundless energy source. Research your community's incentives and the potential to enhance your property value with solar.

Solar costs have dropped substantially over the decades. However, despite hardware costs declining, "soft costs" like paperwork and overheads have been slower to reduce. Still, more homeowners now buy their systems thanks to affordable solar loans.

The barriers include governance, costs, and infrastructure. However, as fossil fuel prices rise and solar costs fall, renewable energy's appeal grows.

The decision hinges on location, available tax incentives, and energy consumption patterns. In favorable conditions, solar systems can even generate income.

From 2022 to 2032, homeowners can avail a solar tax credit, offsetting up to 30% of the system cost.

Loans remain a popular option, with potential savings of 40%-70% over the solar system's life. Sources for these loans range from banks to solar installers.

Indicators include:


Approaching 20-year mark

Neighboring homes getting new roofs

Missing or deformed shingles/tiles

Granules in gutters

Roof sagging or signs of indoor water damage.

If in doubt, consult a roofing professional.
