The first question you might be asking is, is solar power the right choice for you and your family or business? With so much information out there, it’s easy to know that solar is good for the environment, but how do you know if those benefits will extend to you? Will it provide enough energy, and is it more cost-effective?

How Much Does It Cost to Install Solar Panels?

The general estimated cost of solar installation and storage is typically between $32,000 – $70,000 before any sales tax exemptions, and homeowners can take advantage of the 30% solar tax credit to offset some of the initial cost of installation.

Do I Need a Solar Backup Battery?

It’s perfectly normal to lean toward solar power but still have some questions such as, “Do I need a home backup battery?” “How much does a home backup battery cost?” or “How long does a home backup battery last?”. The short answers are “maybe,” “$7,000-$14,000,” and “about 15 years.” Because of the already hefty up-front price tag on solar power installations, home backup batteries aren’t always necessary. It all comes down to individual needs.
