Factors that Determine Solar System Pricing 

Although it would be nice to have standard pricing for solar systems, the reality is that each system we build is completely customized to the needs of a business. Even though there is typically nothing up front out of pocket to switch to solar, unless you are paying cash, it’s important to be familiar with all of the factors that determine your system cost. When we create a proposal for you, you’ll see how cost is presented in the 30 year cash flow analysis we provide.

If you are curious to see what is required to convert your business to renewable energy, please call or send a note on our “ask a question” page. All we require to provide you with a free building assessment is a copy of your electric bill and an address for your property.

If you would prefer a scheduled site visit prior to submitting an electric bill, please call: 888-841-3342 to schedule a day and time convenient for you and a member of our team will stop by.
