Discount Solar Pricing

The Susie Hulet Community Solar RFP Committee, consisting of community volunteers, developed criteria, accepted bids, and selected a installer based on price, quality, and service.

How Does the Susie Hulet Community Solar Discount Work?

Susie Hulet Community Solar is bringing you big savings on quality solar installations! It's that simple. The Program pricing schedule gives all homeowners in Davis, Morgan and Weber counties access to a discounted price for solar installations. Your final price for solar will depend on the size system you choose to install, any unique customizations that might be necessary for your home, and your eligibility for tax credits. Susie Hulet Community Solar has an interest in fostering the growth of more local renewable sources of energy, and has negotiated a discounted rate for your solar installations.

The estimated prices below are based on the Program's standard price of $3.24 per watt for the installation of your panels and inverters, however the Program's pricing options range from $2.87 - $3.24 per watt. The prices below also include monitoring equipment, which will show you real-time information about the electricity your panels are generating.  This estimate does not include permitting fees (which vary from $200 in Ogden to $400 in Bountiful), or additional cost factors (which may be necessary for some homes).

Additional Cost Factors

Many homes are suitable for solar installations, but some homes may require additional installation components (at an additional cost). Your home might require some additional installation components if:

  • You have an unusually steep roof (greater than 8/12 pitch) or a flat roof
  • You have a shake shingle or tile roof
  • You have a very small roof and your installation must be divided into multiple PV arrays
  • You are interested in installing a ground-mount or pole-mount solar PV system
  • Your electrical meter is far away from your solar installation and will require extra wire runs
  • Your home requires a structural assement to be sure the roof can support solar panels (this is very rare)

Why now?
