Helping the people of Vieques since June, 2012...          787-318-0466

Full Home Systems
of 4, 6, 9 and 12 panels
done very inexpensively...

Panels run between $140 and $240 these days (each)... At the time of this edit, my favorite 345 watt panel runs $199. Twelve would be $2,388, for a solar array with a power rating of 4,140 watts per hour, for a MAX daily total of 20,700 USABLE watts.  (Based on a 5 hour max sun angle per day; but panels still produce some before and after that time.) We figure on 15,525 average per day PLUS.

GOOD AGM batteries cost from $300 to $700 each (they are expensive in my book), depending on type and size. My lowest priced 48 volt battery bank (lead acid), which has an astounding power rating of 16,800 TOTAL watts (Note: only half of that usable) costs only $3,400! We also have the biggest baddest 48 volt battery in solar use; the MTS Power Monster... The battery has a minimum rated USABLE capacity of 31.6 kilowatt hours, for $6,900, with an central irrigation system included. 

Controllers run about $500 and Inverters (24 & 48 volt) run from $850 to $3,000 depending on how much you want to pull at a time...
The best split phase 120/240 6000 watt unit runs $1,200. These and can handle a 3x surge of up to 20 seconds! 

Panels and batteries are local, so no shipping and customs time to deal with, and there are no taxes on the panels and Monster Battery, as solar is IVU exempt with proper form filled out. OTHER BATTERIES are NOT IVU exempt.

"Base" installation is figured by $180 times number of panels, plus $400 for control room hookup. Anything additional will be "estimated" (custom racks, special case panel mount construction, or very troublesome wire runs). Most times it is just the basic stuff, and you can even hire others to do some of the ground work for less money. So, "base" labor price for the average 12 panel installation would be just $2560.

Solar design and analysis for 12 or less panels, in an average configuration, is included in the figures and no charge up front (basically done when I do your free estimate).

So, you see the cost for the basic average 12 panel system will run around $16,000 to $18,000... after installation with GOOD battery.

MOST "work" (AFTER Level 1 & Level 2 Diagnostics) is done on a flat-rate, where you will get an estimate in advance of start of work. Diagnostics is based on hourly above, as I have no idea when I get there how long it will take to find a problem. YOUR BIGGEST BENEFIT is the fact that I am considered on of the fastest Diagnosticians in the business.
