If you are an installer, broker, seller, trader, headhunter whatever, READ THIS before posting anything.
It feels like this sub has become nothing more then "Please Look Over this Quote" and "Rate these Quotes". Would it be possible to just create a FAQ or Sticky a Guide with general guidelines on pricing? There could be information on dealer fees and financing rates in there. Given every market is different, we can reiterate the advice for people to seek 3 quotes from local installers. This would give them an idea of pricing in THE LOCAL MARKET.
Just feels like we've been flooded with pricing posts, and it'd be nice to see a change. If mods could limit them they'd be freeing up space for more valuable conversations on equipment, industry trends, solar experiences, etc.
Has anyone here gone ahead with a project after HOA denial? I live in Illinois, where the state doesn't allow HOAs to deny solar installations, but my HOA has denied my application three times, and currently doesn't give a reason. I'm strongly considering the route of HOA waiver, and am wondering if anyone has experience in this area.
I'm absolutely new to solar and just got my first quote, but it seems really high compared to what I was expecting. The company gets really good reviews.
My annual usage is currently 16,496 kWh. He quoted me a 11.02 kilowatt system with an annual production of approximately 16,815 kWh. The quote includes:
29 Panasonic EverVolt
Enphase IQ8+ Inverters
Panasonic’s All Guard 25 Year Warranty
The quote he gave me (pre-tax credit) is $47,720.
I appreciate any input.
EDIT: Just got a cash quote of $35,790.
anyone know if both inverters (SolarEdge) that are daisy chained leader and follower both need the RGM for site production monitoring? when production meter is turned on only seeing production from inverter 1 even though I'm producing almost 20 kW at Peak.
