Solar energy can be perceived as an expensive option. However with advancing technologies and demand, prices are lowering rapidly and the long term savings are not to be ignored.
Many local governments are also offering incentives for those who choose to go solar. This can alter the estimated cost and is a huge advantage.
The overall cost will vary depending on the size of your home, how much electricity you wish to use, the solar system you select and the amount of sunshine you receive.
For the average family, a solar power system will cost in the range of $13,000 to $27,000 before discounts.
