    The solar electric system is set on a flat roof with an angled racking system, and has two rows of panel set behind each other, for a total of approximately 2.5kW. Initial estimates put the production at about on third of the homes requirements, but it has actually been producing closer to half. Also on the roof are 2 solar thermal panels which provide a majority of the domestic hot water for the home.

      At the end of the day, prices come from actual installers. It's clear that if you have the funds available and plan to remain in the home, buying is a better investment than leasing. But with that said, only gathering and comparing quotes from actual installers will both show price and estimate production. Then you can make a data based decision.
