Why We Launched Cost of Solar

15 years ago, solar was an expensive, niche technology reserved almost exclusively for space satellites, handheld calculators and road signs. In the years since, however, plummeting solar panel installation costs have helped to make this technology both mainstream and within easy financial reach of millions of Americans.

By providing access to solar quotes and free online resources, our goal is to educate you about the tremendous benefits of installing photovoltaic panels, including:

  • Lower electricity bills from Day 1. Each additional kilowatt of installed solar capacity moves your electricity bill closer and closer to $0/month
  • Passive income via solar power generation. Depending on your state and applicable incentives, it’s possible to generate positive cash flow from your solar PV installation.
  • Stronger economic growth. At a time of high unemployment, solar energy remains one of the primary job-creation engines in today’s sluggish economy.
  • A healthier environment with cleaner air, water, and soil. Continued reliance on fossil fuel is one of the main reasons why we have more freak super-storms, erratic droughts, and pollution

We hope you find these free resources useful. Together, with your help, we can build a cleaner and more sustainable future powered by the sun.
Thank you,
