• Phoenix, AZ goes solar with SunPower®

    Going solar in the Valley of the Sun

The state of solar in Phoenix

The Shining Cities 2020 report ranks Phoenix, AZ, fourth among the top solar cities in the U.S. The Valley of the Sun achieved this ranking thanks to favorable clean energy laws and having the city’s very light-filled 299 days of sunshine each year.*

However, according to Google’s Project Sunroof, Phoenix is far from achieving its full solar potential. Project Sunroof estimates that Phoenix could generate up to 14.8 million megawatt hours (MWh) annually if 98% of buildings in the city installed solar panels.


How much solar energy does Phoenix produce?

In 2019, Phoenix had enough solar systems to produce 272.4 MW.* One of Arizona’s largest solar power stations is Solana, a facility 70 miles southwest of Phoenix. The facility produces 250 MW of electricity – enough to power over 65,000 homes.*

What are the advantages of going solar in Phoenix?

Solar energy is a clean and sustainable alternative to electricity from burning fossil fuels, and far safer than nuclear energy. Plus, the long-term savings will cover the cost of your installation.

If you install a 5 kW system today, you will save $43,434 over the next 20 years. Since the average 5 kW system in Phoenix costs $12,600, you can recuperate your investment within 7.03 years.*

Another financial benefit of going solar is the value that it will add to your property. Installing a 5 kW solar system can increase your home’s value by at least 4%.* Thanks to Arizona’s favorable property exemption laws, you won’t have to pay taxes on the value added to your home, either.

What’s the best way to go solar in Phoenix?

The most efficient way to go solar is with the help of a qualified and experienced solar provider. The solar provider will assess your property to determine the right solar system for your energy needs and recommend the best quality solar system for your budget.

Before meeting with an expert, you can also estimate your own cost savings and see what solar looks like on your roof with a virtual solar design.

Leaving your solar installation to an expert increases your chances of getting a system that will stand the test of time and improve your property value. If you need help reducing the cost of going solar, your solar installer can help you access available state and federal solar incentives.
