There are a variety of financial incentives for solar installation the United States Department of Energy has developed the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency to keep track of these incentives.
- Different types of solar systems will cost different amount. If your installer does not specify these differences make sure to ask about them.
- Costs of solar systems can be reduced with incentives, ask your installer about these incentives. Some installers may even fill out the incentive applications for you.
- Do not judge the cost of a solar system on upfront costs alone, ask your installer about the approximate payback period of the system.
