Your Potential Savings With Minnesota Solar

Total savings over 30 years
= Value of Energy Produced + Value of Tax Credit - Cost of System Installation
= ${{energyValueTotalPretty}} + ${{itcPretty}} - ${{systemCostPretty}}
Contact us to refine this estimate further. We will do a digital analysis of your property to see if anything needs to be updated and get a more precise estimate of your possible solar production and cost to install your panels.

Here's how we calculate solar savings:

  • A {{systemSize}} killowatt solar system will need to be installed to produce enough energy for your {{sqFtSelection.display}} home selection
  • Your solar system will cost about ${{systemCostPretty}} to install. This is an all inclusive cost estimate, no extra fees. We can get a more accurate estimate after reviewing your project digitally or on site.
  • You could get a tax credit of ${{itcPretty}} on next year's tax return. The current solar tax incentive in Minnesota is 30% of the cost of your solar installation.
  • The value of the energy you produce will be about ${{cost_per_kw_hour}} per killowatt hour (according to Minneapolis average energy costs recently from bls.gov)
  • Your system will produce about ${{energyValueTotalPretty}} worth of energy over the next {{num_years_estimated}} years.
  • Your system will produce about ${{energyValueYear1Pretty}} worth of energy in it's first year. Each year thereafter energy will be worth around {{kwh_value_increase_annual*100}}% more than the previous year after inflation, cost of energy, and panel degradation is factored in.
  • Because you have no shade you'll maximize the energy production from your solar panels.
  • Because you have {{shadingSelection['display']}} your energy production from solar is factored down a bit.
