KEC is excited to offer pre-packaged ground mount solar kits for members to purchase! The 4 KW kit includes the solar panels, racking, inverters and system monitoring software to view the energy production in real-time. The cost per kit is $14,178.56 (includes tax). This does not include installation costs or potential tax incentives.
Idaho code requires that members hire a licensed electrician to build the kit and safely connect the solar array to their home. The estimated installation cost listed below includes permits, labor, up to 100 feet of trenching and wire, piers and concrete blocks, breakers and manual disconnect. Members should obtain several bids to determine the actual installation cost. Please note: energy projections are estimates only and will vary from year to year and by location. System payback is roughly equal to the system life (approximately 25 years). Please consult with a tax professional regarding any potential tax incentives. KEC plans to install a kit as a demo at our office later this spring. For more information contact us at 208.765.1200.
