Solar is now the most cost-effective form of renewable energy. That’s because the cost of solar has decreased dramatically over the last 20 years through innovations in technology and there is a much bigger global supply chain for solar as it has become more popular around the world.
The upfront cost of solar is the installation of your solar system but you start saving money from day one as solar greatly reduces or even eliminates your power bills. You will continue to make those savings for years to come which is useful to know as the price of power in Aotearoa will only continue to rise.
How much does a solar system cost?
At Lightforce, we design your solar system with you to create the right sized system to meet your home’s energy needs. Each one is individually created for each customer and takes into account how you use your energy, certain details about your home and your roof and considers what you are wanting to achieve by going solar.
Depending on the size of the system installed, a solar system for an average sized home can cost $8,000 – $10,000 for a basic residential grid-tied system with a more advanced system costing up to $30,000 or more. Payback on a solar system can sometimes be as quick as five years, depending on your energy demands, usage profile, and current power company charges.
On average our customers generate $2,400 a year of electricity* and they save 70% a year on power* an estimated saving up to $70,000 over 20 years*
