Open Data

Solar is more common than you think! Many of your neighbors have made the leap. The data below are collected by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory as part of the Open PV Project. Comprising over one million installations in the U.S., it can help you understand the extent and local pricing of solar.

Important notes about the data

1 Price before rebates is the gross price of the system, before sales taxes and incentives. Something to keep in mind is that the cost of solar hardware has dropped dramatically in recent years - about 80% in the past ten years - and continues to decline. This means that systems that were installed a few years ago will be noticeably more costly than one purchased today.

2 Local rebates lists grants or rebates supplied by certain local agencies. It does not include all available rebates to the customer, such as federal and state tax incentives. To better understand all the rebates available in your local area, use our calculator.

3 Systems marked third-party owned are either leased or under a power purchase agreement (PPA). Under a PPA, the homeowner pays little or nothing for the pv sytem. Instead, the hardware is owned by installer, and the customer agrees to buy electricity from the company at a rate that is lower than the utility price. The company makes money on the difference between those two rates, and they typically retain any tax incentives and rebates. The advantage of this model is that it's possible to get solar for your home without paying anything out of pocket. The disadvantage, depending on the incentives available to you, is that it may be less financially lucrative over the long run compared to owning the system yourself.

4 The federal rebate is the Solar Investment Tax Credit and is estimated here as a 30% rebate of the "Price before rebates"

There are many components that affect the price of a system, including the configuration of your roof, the modules and inverter hardware, so don't assume that you will pay the same price that your neighbor did.
