Take the first step towards understanding your solar savings. This tool was designed to help you estimate your solar savings potential
with a residential rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system.
Find out your estimated solar savings based on your electricity use, current electricity rates and available tax credits and rebates using default rooftop characteristics.
View options side-by-side to understand how different scenarios may impact your wallet in the near-term and long-term.
If solar seems like a good investment for you, please be sure to review existing programs available and consult with a solar contractor.

This tool simplifies the complexity of the solar purchase decision for PV by making default assumptions regarding your rooftop and providing recommendations to get you started. The tool strives for objectivity and reasonable accuracy.
However, there are factors that may alter results, including specific equipment attributes, complex installation scenarios, unaccounted for shading and roof obstructions, credit worthiness, specific tax situations, aesthetic preferences, and potential changes to existing residential electric rates.
Results provide a baseline for sizing systems. If solar seems like a good investment for you, please be sure to review existing programs available and consult with a solar contractor. It is recommended that the actual system sizing consider roof space, alignment and shading in discussions with your solar installer. Actual site requirements will determine sizing.
