The cost of a solar panel array can be quite staggering if you don't investigate all of your options. Many people are hesitant to invest in a technology that changes and is growing at such a rapid rate. You will need to balance practicality, efficiency, and cost if you really wan to make the most of solar power.

It's incredibly important to look into the cost of the solar panel array that you would like to install on your roof. On average a 4k system or a solar panel system that can produce 4000 watts day will cost about $25,000 dollars. Prices vary from state to state so it's important to talk to several contractors before you sign anything.

You also want to know if your state or local utility will can assist with the cost with rebates or incentives. If you are planning to make your own solar panels then check with your power company to make sure they can be tested and certified to meet their standards. Otherwise you will not be able to connect your solar panel array to the grid.
