Residential Solar System Costs

While there are some initial upfront costs to a residential solar power installation, generous tax credits and incentives greatly reduce the price. And with HELOC, low-interest solar loans, and other financing options, many homeowners replace their electric bill with a payment towards their new system. After the system is paid for, you can enjoy years of clean energy production for free.

For a limited time, residents of Vernon, CT can enjoy additional savings through the Solarize Vernon campaign.

1. On-site Inspection

A solar consultant will visit your house and go over your options for solar. They will inspect your home, look over past energy bills, and discuss financing options. By the end of this meeting, you’ll have a better understanding of residential solar systems and know how much you can save by installing a system.

2. Design the System

When you accept our proposal and sign a contract, we will start designing your solar system. This includes using software to lay out mounting equipment and panels, designing the electrical components, and submitting the designs to your municipality for the permitting process.

3. Installation

Once we receive the permits and financing, we will start installing the solar system on your roof. All work is carried out by our team of professional installers and certified electricians. We will tie in the inverters to your home’s current electrical system, as well as install a monitoring system so we can keep track of energy production by your system.

What Makes a Good Location for a Solar Panel System?


A roof facing south, southeast or southwest.

Although a roof is the best location, a system can also be installed on the ground if a roof cannot be used.

Metal Roof

A 35 to 50 degree roof tilt. This allows for optimal year-round energy production. A solar system can also be placed on a flat roof using a racking system.


Clear access to the sun for most of the day. The location should be unobstructed by trees, roof-gables, chimneys, buildings and other features of your home or surrounding landscape.


Adequate space on your roof or property. More space equals more panels producing free electricity.

Metal Roof

A roof in good condition. If your roof needs to be replaced in the very near future, you may want to replace it before the solar system is installed to avoid the cost of removing and reinstalling your system.

The best way to determine if your home is a good candidate for solar is to schedule a free solar site assessment. We will visit your home, measure your roof, and give you an estimate of how much energy a solar system would produce. If you know someone who might benefit for solar, refer them to Earthlight and earn a gift card if they install a solar array.
