Solar power FAQs

  • The cost of solar panels depends on various factors, including the size of your system, the type of solar panels you install, local installation costs, and more. In general, you can expect to pay between $16,338 and $48,963 in Massachusetts, depending on system size and before factoring in tax credits and other incentives that can lower the total cost.

  • Solar power can be an excellent investment, helping you reduce your energy costs and gain more energy independence. However, it’s important to consider your energy usage habits and the amount of sunlight your property gets to determine if it’s the right decision.

  • The amount you could save by investing in solar power depends on the amount of energy your solar panels produce and your current energy usage habits. Massachusetts residents paid an average electricity bill of $143.58 in August 2022. You can easily calculate how much you will save by using a simple formula. For example, if the total cost of solar is $17,381 for a 6.5kW solar system after using the 30% federal tax credit on a system worth $24,830. So the savings will come down to $17,381: $143.58 x 12 = $1,452 per year. You could further increase your savings if you apply state financial incentives.

  • With 433 solar companies in Massachusetts, including manufacturers and installers, it can be daunting to find the trusted company.
