Going solar in the Asheville area has become more affordable over time.
Over time, technological advancements in the solar industry have made going solar more affordable for Asheville residents. That being said, the cost of a solar system will be dependent on a few different factors: your home, electricity use and ongoing energy goals all play roles in the cost. Our team of solar experts can help you design a custom solar solution that addresses your home’s unique needs, down to how many solar panels will be necessary.
Calculating Your Solar Panel Cost
Since every home is different, it’s difficult to calculate the average cost of solar panels. Pink Energy creates residential solar systems to address each home’s needs. You can, however, roughly estimate how much solar panels will cost for your home using dollars per watt. Watts is the unit of measurement used for solar production, and for how much energy your home uses.
Using the number of watts your home typically goes through, we can determine how many panels your Asheville home will require. From that number, our team of experts can more effectively create a custom solution for your home. The number of panels needed plus installation costs will add up to your overall cost for going solar.

This percentage goes down to 22% through the end of 2023 and is unavailable for residential solar systems after that.
