Cost and Performance

The cost of buying a solar electric system can vary based on system size, location, equipment used and other factors. Though MassCEC cannot say what a "good" price is for your solar electric system, we can help you see what others are paying for solar projects around the Commonwealth.

MassCEC and the Department of Energy Resources have gathered information on solar systems installed in Massachusetts under various state programs, such as the Solar Carve Out.  Residents interested in solar can use the below dashboard to explore this information, better understand the economics of installing solar on their homes, and compare solar system information across the Commonwealth.

This dashboard is based on the data included in our Solar PV Systems in MA Report, which can be downloaded here in an excel format. Data about the performance of solar electric systems in Massachusetts can also be downloaded as part of the SREC Capacity Factor Report.
