Cost vs Savings


How much does it cost to install solar panels in Central Coast California?







The cost of a solar panel installation varies widely. Although square footage is commonly used as a basis for cost, it’s more accurate to base your decision upon the number and type of appliances you run (how much power you need). Even if your home is identical to your neighbor’s, your household’s solar system needs will differ.

To that end, your decision to install a home battery will play a factor. With additional energy storage, your system’s efficiency will increase, and you may not need as many solar panels installed. This in turn could reduce your overall costs.

While we can’t provide an exact estimate without carefully assessing your home’s location, roof pitch, and unique energy needs, we can say that installation costs typically depend on the following factors:

  • The amount of energy you need on a daily basis
  • The brand, model, and number of solar panels you choose
  • Your system’s inverter, mounting hardware, and other necessary equipment
  • Whether you choose to install a backup battery, such as a Tesla Powerwall or Enphase Encharge system
  • The local, state, or federal tax incentives and solar rebates available
  • Labor and installation

Note that product and labor warranties will also impact your overall costs. When you choose premium solar products (like those installed by Photon Brothers) you’ll enjoy longer warranties and fewer out-of-pocket repair or maintenance expenses.
