    It's likely you'll still be spending some at the local hardware/big box store.
    wire
    conduit
    breakers
    etc.
    And you need some way to get the wires up to the roof. (Not sure what the typical method is with a tile roof)

    It's probably an OK price - You can check the same materials at renvu or soligent.

    I think it's been possible to get down to $1.50/W for a DIY system.
    But most people have some issues that requires spending some more money - like shading so they need to use solaredge or microinverters. Or they don't have enough roof space so need higher wattage panels. Or need to replace a breaker panel. (Or all 3 like my house)

      Hey, zaz, any updates?
      I'm gotten one estimate of $18k from an on-line source in NJ. I'm passing on that one!
      I still have lots of research to do but would appreciate knowing who your installer is......I may be interested. Thanks.
