Happy New Years! On this day of celebration, I’m raising a glass to the decreasing cost of solar!
I just took a peek at my favorite Solar Panel Cost Comparison website and saw that prices have dropped again.
Using the new, lower PV prices and the same process I outlined here for quotes, I put together a sample kit* with a larger array of 4.6 kW to accommodate the minimum order on the 70 cent/watt panels:
The 10 cent/watt decrease in panel costs resulted in total system pricing of $1.70/watt ($7800/4.6 kW) before any utility or government subsidies or SREC payments.
