    In 2017, many homeowners were paying somewhere between $2.80-$4 per watt to install solar, and the average gross cost of solar panels before tax credits was $16,800. Using the U.S, average for system size at 5 kW (5000 watts), solar panel cost will range from $10,000 to $13,500 (after tax credits). That’s 9% lower than it was a year ago, and solar panel system costs are continuing to fall.

    Sounds like an article written in early 2017, Lots of solar imports and hence installations seem to be on hold until the government decides if and/or how much they will increase tariffs.

    Looking to get a system probably next year, hoping too the price of inverters would drop.
