Asheville solar power FAQs

A standard 9 kW panel would then cost about $33,570 in Asheville. Make sure to shop around with installers for the best price.   

  • The state of North Carolina is a great place to invest in solar, ranking third in overall solar power generation in the U.S. You could save $7,480.20 over 20 years based on North Carolina’s average electric rate, the 30% tax credit, and median estimates for solar panels locally.
