You'd need to contact a solar specialist in your area.

Christine Tusher added this to Going Solar at Home: Solar Panel Basics
Historically low interest rates are also making it easy for homeowners with good credit to get a good deal on a loan. If you decide to go this route, make sure that your loan payment is less than your average electricity bill to ensure that you’re still saving money.Note: Going solar will usually raise your homeowner’s insurance premium; expect to see it increase by a few bucks per month.

Lease, buy or finance? Solar leases have become an increasingly popular option as a way to defray the up-front costs. Leasing companies will also usually pay for repairs and maintenance. However, a permanent installation not only comes with tax advantages, but it will also likely increase the value of your home, as the new buyers will be able to save energy without the hassle of installation.

consider solar when designing roofline. If we add it down the road, it would only be an option if it's not visable from anywhere

Solar Panels. This is actually also a standing seam metal roof but majority of the roof is then covered with an array of solar panels. This is a green choice. An added benefit is that it adds a cool geometric design to the home's exterior!
