At SunPower by South Coast Solar, we understand the complexity and financial implications involved with renewable energy incentives and tax benefits. Our team, along with our project partners, will provide insight into which programs and incentives are available in order to maximize the benefits to each project.
As part of every potential project, SunPower by South Coast Solar will provide an estimate for your home once we determine several factors. Every home is different and each home consumes different amounts of energy. The first thing we look at is your energy bill to help determine how many kW's you consume on a monthly or annual basis. We can design systems to offset different amounts of energy, but there are some factors that may limit the design and the production of the system.
First, having a good south facing roof is optimal, but east and west facing roofs can produce good amounts of energy as well. Second, we need to determine if there is shading that may impact the performance of the system. This video will help explain the significance of shading and how it impacts the production of a solar system.
Once we determine what size system will work for your home based on available roof space and shading, we create and estimate. In the solar industry, companies use the terminology price per watt, which means the dollar amount it cost to purchase 1 watt of energy. Over the past 10 years pricing has dropped on solar systems and the average price for a system will vary based on manufacturers, but the cost of a system can range from the $3 - $5 dollars per watt. For example, a 5000 watt of 5 kW system could range from $15,000 to $25,000 installed before any tax credits or rebates are applied.
