How much should I budget for a solar PV system?
Here are some broad figures. The minimum budget for a PV system to generate electricity is about $12K. Battery back-up typically adds about $8K to the system.

For example, a 1000 watt system is around $12k or $12/watt while a 6000 watt system is around $48K or $8/watt.
