Going solar in the Detroit area has become more affordable over time.
With industry technology advancing over time, going solar in Detroit has become a more affordable prospect. You should know, however, that the cost of your solar system will vary based on a few factors, including your home, electricity use and ongoing energy goals.

Calculating Your Solar Panel Cost
Calculating the average cost of solar panels isn’t as easy as it may seem, since it depends on each home. Each residential solar system we install is done to best accomplish their specific energy goals. With that said, you can estimate what solar panels for your home will cost based on dollars per watt. Watts measure how much energy your home makes use of, and is also the unit of measurement for solar production.
The number of panels your Detroit home will need is found based on how many watts your home typically needs. Once that number is located, our experts can build out a custom solar solution for you. How many solar panels your home needs plus installation costs will determine your overall cost for a solar system.
