First off I want to thank everyone here I have been reading posts here to help understand the process of buying solar panels and researching if its worth it. this is the quote I have gotten so far and I will get many more thanks to the tips on this forum. I'm in the Bay Area in California in Brentwood, Ca

Was wondering what you all thought about the make and model of the inverters and optimizers and I have no shade on the roof.

7.8KW system

Before 30% incentive $24,900

26 panels Hanwha Q-cell 300 watt

Solaredge 6000 SE inverter

Solaredge P320 optimizers each panel

$24,900 divided by 7.8 KW comes out to $3.19 per watts

With 30% credit should be $17,430 comes out to $2.23

System is supposed to generate 11,000 KWH/yr which is what I use per year

Comes with 25 year warranty on everything every part and labor and if anything goes wrong I just call and the company does everything no cost to me

The company is also a roofing company and reviews are all good

I pay $2300 a year right now in electricity

So return in investment will be about 8 years

I bought my house brand new it was an energy efficient home as far as everything such as appliances and ac/heater is energy efficient so not much I can do there

I like the idea that after 8 years I can actually have a reduced electricity bill or close to nothing.

Any thoughts recommendations would be great. I used PVwatts and a few resources thanks to this forum.
