Solar power FAQs

  • With an average cost of $3 to $5 per watt, an average-sized solar system would come out to between $11,160 and $46,500 . You can use the federal tax credit and Washington solar incentives (such as net metering) to offset part of the cost of solar panels in Washington.

  • Under the right circumstances, solar can be a good investment in Washington. How much you’ll save will depend on factors like how much electricity you use, the weather conditions at your home, and available incentives in your area.

  • In Washington, the average monthly electricity bill is approximately $137.31. By switching to solar, you could eliminate this monthly expense, which would save you more than $1,100 per year. Plus, if you participate in net metering, you could earn credits back on your bills.

  • Solar is a renewable resource that doesn’t release carbon dioxide when produced (in contrast to traditional fossil fuels). When you move to solar, you’ll cut down on the amount of carbon that your home releases into the environment, helping you lead a cleaner and greener lifestyle.
