Solar systems come in a few main varieties. Roof-mounted models are becoming more popular. Base prices for electric-boosted roof-mounted models range from about $3600 to $4400 or more. Electric-boosted systems with a tank on the ground (these are called a “split system”) are preferable when roofs can’t support the weight of a tank. These systems range from roughly $3900 to $5000 or more. Finally, a gas boosted split system starts at around $4900 and ranges up to $6500.
