Cost of US Solar

Note: prices are installed cost per rated Watt of solar generating capacity (or $/WDC); the installed cost includes everything needed to get a solar power system up and running: the panels, the power electronics, the mounting hardware, and the installation itself

All categories of solar have seen significantly declining costs since 2010.  However, since these are median figures, low cost solar in one location doesn’t necessarily mean low cost solar everywhere in the country. The installed price can vary significantly.
