Know the cost of installation of the solar panels

The initial cost of installation of solar panel is quite high but the solar panel lasts for 25 to 40 years. This compensates the heavy initial expenditure. The cost of the solar system is measured in dollars per watt, and the larger systems lower the per watt cost of the panel. Although in absolute terms the installation cost of the larger panels may be more but it proves to a cost effective option. The reasons behind are listed below :

  • You will pay the same installation cost, which you will pay for the smaller panel.
  • The inverters are generally sized for the PV systems of up to five kilo watt. Thus, the higher the kilo watt of your system, the more cost effective is your purchase.
