Here are some common questions about solar energy and our net-metering program. This information is for reference only and we encourage you to talk with a contractor and independently verify all current information related to solar prior to signing any installation agreement or contract.

Estimated system costs can be roughly approximated at $3 – $5 per installed watt (PIW)
(8kW system x $4.5PIW = $36,000).

These prices have been declining over the past few years as the industry has grown. Nationally, a considerable amount of the project cost is in the installation process.

Clark Public Utilities recommends that customers obtain cost estimates from several contractors before moving forward on installing solar generating systems.
