What Factors Determine Residential Solar Panel Cost?

We know that you have come to this page to learn about the average cost of solar panels. You are not alone – this is the number one question we hear from customers when they contact us! While some solar companies reference an average cost on their websites, we are reluctant to do so because residential solar panel cost varies dramatically between customers.

Instead of giving an inaccurate, general cost for home solar panels, we prefer to provide our clients with a free, customized quotation for their project. This way, our customers know that the cost they are given is accurate so they can plan accordingly. When determining residential solar panel cost, we take several factors into consideration. These include:

  • Your electricity requirements – This is one of the biggest factors. A smaller system will cost a lot less, but it may not provide you with sufficient electricity to power your home year-round.
  • Size and type of roof – Your roof dictates how the solar panels will be installed. Certain roofs will require more extensive engineering to accommodate solar panels, which can drive costs up. Other roofs suit a standard installation and result in a lower price.
  • Geographical location – Solar panels and installation fees vary based upon the cost of living in your area. For example, a homeowner in Brooklyn can expect to pay slightly more for their panels than a homeowner in Kansas.

Our team is committed to making your transition to solar as easy as possible. We believe that providing you with accurate information about the average cost of solar panels is more helpful than quoting a cost that may be far from what you will actually need to pay.

Solar Tax Credits & Incentives Can Reduce the Average Cost of Solar Panels

There are a number of solar tax credits and incentives available throughout the United States that can help reduce the average cost of solar panels in your area.

Secure Your Future with Home Solar Panels

In addition to saving a considerable amount of money over time, an attractive benefit of home solar panels is the provision of price-protected electricity throughout the lifetime of your solar system. As electricity prices continue to rise, this is a strong incentive for going solar. By locking in your electricity costs, you can better plan for your future and be prepared for changes ahead.

Who fixes the panels if there is an issue?

No need to worry if your panels need fixing. An iron-clad product warranty and worry-free maintenance is built into your solar agreement. We’ll keep your system functioning optimally and will monitor it to detect and resolve any issues that may arise.

will i still be connected to the grid?

When you go solar, there will be times that your system isn’t generating quite enough power—like after sunset. The majority of solar customers remain connected to the electric grid for easy access to power after dark.

What is net metering?

The good news is that when your solar panels produce more power than your home can use, the excess electricity is automatically sent back into the grid. The meter actually spins backwards, building a ‘bank’ of credits with your utility company. The process is referred to as “net metering,” and is another financial perk of home solar.

What if i lose power?

For the safety of workers that are fixing power outages, it is a utility regulation for solar power systems to shut off during blackouts if there is a connection to the grid.

What if i want to sell my home?

If you sell your home, you can transfer your solar agreement to the new homeowner pursuant to the terms of your solar service agreement. The process is very easy and offers electricity savings, which is a great selling point when your home is on the market. The Momentum Solar Customer Experience team will walk you through the entire process, but it’s important that you contact us by email at or by phone at 732.902.6224 as soon as you decide to sell your home.

Why are agreements 20-25 years in duration?

The reason for a 20 or 25-year term is to keep your rate per kWh as low as possible. Your solar savings are either locked in or predictable so that you can enjoy peace of mind for years to come.
