    Well a 3kw system is roughly $25000 that is grid-tie (without batteries), the energy solely goes to power you home and back to your grid (the utility). With the federal tax credit that knocks off $7500. The FTC is 30% off the total cost of your system, and it is a credit against you income taxes. So now the cost of the system in $17,500. Your state or local utility company might offer another incentive on top of that and that will make the pay off period a lot shorter, maybe even less than 5 years. Check out the link below to see if you state offers any rebates.
