Is your business interested in investing in a solar system? It is a great idea to reduce your monthly energy costs, and your business will be more environmentally friendly, contributing to a greener planet. You are probably also thinking – “What is the cost of going solar?”. To answer that question, you will need to know the main factors involved in implementing a solar solution. We list down the top drivers that will impact the cost of going solar for a business:

System Size

The larger the system, the more energy it will produce but oversizing the system will result in inefficiencies in cost. A business will have to evaluate its energy needs and then compare the capital invested to the system capacity to find out the cost of the solar solution. Of course, you can always start with a moderately sized system and then scale it up as per your energy requirements. GreenBrilliance offers a comprehensive consultation session to arrive at the perfect solar solution to be installed.

Type of installation

Typically solar systems are either rooftop installations or ground-mounted systems. Rooftop panels have the roof as a foundation, but ground-mounted systems need land and a base to implement them. Therefore, ground-mounted systems can be more expensive. But you can install larger ground-mounted solar solutions as compared to rooftop installations.


The equipment such as solar panels, solar cells and storage systems determine the efficiency of the solar system. The better the quality of the components, the greater value you will get out of the solar system. GreenBrilliance offers high quality, made in USA systems that are efficient. It means you can get more energy generated with our solutions at affordable costs.

Interconnection costs

These are the costs involved in connecting your solar system to the utility grid. It depends on existing infrastructure and specific requirements of the utility company related to equipment, wiring, etc.

These are some of the critical factors that impact the cost of a solar installation. But each project is different. GreenBrilliance, with its expertise and vast experience, can take you through the process of evaluation to determine the best solar system for your needs and implement it at the most optimal cost.
