San Francisco Solar Power FAQs

  • The size of the solar system and the local installation price are two direct factors that affect pricing. The median cost in California for a solar panel system is $3.87 per watt. A standard 5.7 kW panel would cost about $21,935 before tax credits and incentives. It’s important to shop around with different installers to find the best local price.  

  • Solar power is a sound long-term investment for homeowners and renters alike. The upfront costs may be steep, but you could save over $20,000 after 20 years of using solar in San Francisco. Energy prices rise over time, so lowering your energy bills by generating your own electricity will lead to huge savings.
