How to Compare Solar Quotes

Solar Quotes Aren't Created Equal

Solar quotes can be very different from one another, making an apples-to-apples comparison difficult!

Differences can include:

  • System size (this will have the biggest influence)
  • Whether government incentives are included in the quoted price
  • Equipment quality and warranties
  • Installation timelines

How to Compare Solar Quotes

With all these differences, the task of comparison seems difficult.

However, there is one easy way to compare solar quotes: price per watt.

"What is price per watt?"

It is your total system cost (before government incentives) / total system size.

For example, if you were quoted $26,500 for a 8kW (8,000 watt) system, your price per watt would be $3.31/watt.

This allows for a universal comparison and it should be the most important factor you consider.

Of course, you also need to consider the equipment warranty. Make sure your panels come with at least a 25-year warranty as this is the industry baseline standard.

Lastly, consider the installation timeline. Not that it makes a huge difference, but if it takes one company 1 week before it gets installed vs. 2 months for another, that could be worth considering.
