sunMAX - State Outlook & sunMAX Profit/Savings

Summary

We've prepared a series of reports that show the value of sunMAX across different US States using a sample, 16-panel, South-facing array. Throughout these reports, we suggest between $1.75-$2.50 Cost/Watt to the customer, which ensures

  1. Profits for Installer (you), as well as
  2. Net Savings to Customer.

Here is a list of variables that effectively allow us to weigh the value of sunMAX across each State:

  1. Avg. Utility Cost
  2. Avg. Annual Consumption
  3. Avg. Monthly Bill
  4. Est. Annual Production

Conclusion

Due to its low Cost/Watt, sunMAX is a sound investment in virtually every market, provided you take advantage of the tax incentives such as the Federal 30% Investment Tax Credit for renewables.

The State Outlook reports we've created are simple estimates based on 1:1 net-metering agreements—it is very likely that local programs exist (SRECs, Incentives, etc.), which further increase the Net Savings to the end-customer, adding more value to sunMAX for your market.

We have included $1500 of estimated additional costs in these estimates to account for shipping, interconnection fees, and other miscellaneous costs. Your profit margin (as Installer) is calculated after subtracting those costs.

Although traditional Solar States (ex. California) see the most value, sunMAX disrupts the Energy Market in traditionally non-Solar States (ex. West Virginia, Washington). The payback period represents the number of years before the sunMAX system provides savings returns—shorter is better (ex. 0 years).

 *Due to increased consumption combined with low electric rates, a 24-panel estimate was used as it offers greater ROI. 

**Washington estimate includes state incentive $0.15/kWh tax rebate through 2020 in calculations.
