That’s $35,529 that you will pay over the warranted life of the solar system (25 years) IF the electric company doesn’t raise your rates. Average of 3.2% increase per year.


From now through 2019 you will get a 30% federal tax credit, which includes that for equipment and installation. This means you would save $7,500 on a solar system worth $25,000. Combine this with state and local rebates WA incentives. Sales tax exempt A production incentive is a program that pays you (you can receive a check!)

Production incentives are paid on top of the net.
