This Solar Calculator will compute the size and estimated cost to install a solar energy system for your home or building. The solar calculator's financial analysis is based on energy bill savings you can expect and the net solar system cost, after tax credits and other incentives are applied. The solar calculator results are based on many assumptions and the limited data you will enter. An actual site assessment by a trained professional contractor will be needed to determine the actual costs and benefits of installing a solar energy system.

Our Solar & Wind Estimators are driven by our proprietary databases - the industry's largest and most up-to-date - of solar and wind energy incentives and solar/wind energy rebates. We include federal, state, local and utility incentives and rebates for solar and wind energy systems. These include tax credits, tax deductions, property tax relief, purchase incentives (rebates), production incentives, and more. Our solar & wind estimators cover solar electric, solar water heating, solar pool and spa heating, and wind turbines.

Use our Solar & Wind Estimators to see these solar and wind energy incentives and rebates in action and run financial analysis.

Incentive summaries, below, include Federal Investment Tax Credit and other federal tax incentives for solar power and wind energy investments, such as Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) depreciation.
