What determines the cost of solar panels in Altadena, CA?
The price you pay for solar depends on many factors:
The bigger your solar panel system, the pricier it will be. Importantly, the average per-unit price for solar decreases with increasing system size.
Panel brand and quality
Like any product or appliance, solar panels come in varying quality which can be highly dependent on brand.
The type of panel you install (typically monocrystalline, polycrystalline, or thin-film) directly impacts the overall quality of your installation. Higher quality = higher prices.
The cost of a solar panel installation doesn’t just come from equipment. Your solar installer will also charge for the difficulty of the installation, meaning if you have a complex roof your system may cost more.
Solar companies all charge different labor rates for their work. You may opt to pay more for a more reputable company with better reviews and a shorter time period until installation.
Permitting and interconnection
While it’s not a large factor, paying for permits and your interconnection fee to the grid will add a little to the top of your total solar installation price.
