How Much PV Do I Need?Solar generated power is a commodity, just like utility generated power. Almost everyone is accustomed to having unlimited electricity whenever and wherever the demand exists. But rather than solar PV being a luxury like a swimming pool, PV is a hedge against long-term rising utility costs. This changes the focus of the system cost from the installed cost per DC Watt to the lifetime cost per generated kilowatt hour. And since the amount of solar PV to install is based on several significant issues, some are your decision and some may be beyond your control, the primary factor may well be the long-term cost.

How Much Does PV Cost?Just as insurance or certain financial investments provide a “hedge” value against undesirable future conditions, PV provides a hedge against invariable coal, nuclear and natural gas price rises.

If a PV installations cost can be amortized into a long-term financial note, say a mortgage, that cost will be far more affordable and predictable than paying the full cost at the time of installation, the typical method. Either way, the cost of a PV installation must be thought of as a long-term investment.
