Solar power FAQs

  • The cost of solar panels in Boston varies depending on your home’s location, energy usage, and other factors. Massachusetts residents pay between $16,000 and $50,000 for a solar array, with a median price of $28,504. That doesn’t include any tax credits and incentives, which can shave thousands off the upfront cost.

  • Solar power is a great investment, especially if your home gets a lot of direct sunlight. If your solar array produces enough energy to power your home, you could recoup your costs in about 11.5 years and save hundreds or thousands every year on long-term electricity costs.

  • It’s a good idea to compare your options for solar installers in your area. SaveOnEnergy can help you connect with a local installer. Fill out our form or call the number on your screen to get started.

  • Solar power reduces your carbon footprint because it doesn’t emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. It also relies on the sun, a renewable resource that isn’t depletable like fossil fuels are. Switching to solar is one of the best ways to reduce your environmental impact.
