So my solar installation is finally complete.  A summary:

I read this thread on May 5.
I had sunrun come estimate my house.
I created an energysage account afterwards.
I told sunrun to fuck off.
I signed with a solar company on 05.30.2019
It was installed on 08.07.2019
Edison gave me PTO (permission to operate) on 08.21.2019.

So what now?

energysage.com had some promotions that I just applied.
1. $100 amazon gift card
2. $250 Panasonic rebate for using their panels

We'll see if I actually get any of this money.

Congrats. What company did you go with and what was their quote per kWatt before tax incentive?

Tesla solar panels reportedly caught fire at an Amazon warehouse in 2018

Tesla solar energy systems reportedly ignited at an Amazon warehouse in Redlands, California last June, and the Seattle e-commerce titan confirmed that it has no further plans to buy solar energy systems from Tesla.

How did you "apply" for your Panasonic Energysage rebate? I saw the rebate when quoting and installed Panasonic. I just don't see a place to apply for it.

While I was asking for the amazon $100 gift card, I asked energy sage about the Panasonic rebate and they sent me this link.

I hate rebates  I was taught they were used by companies to sell shit and hope that the person buying would forget about them....much like you have.  It is hidden for a reason.

Tesla updated their solar panel size increments and pricing (from May this year).  Now the sizes are in increments of 3.8kw instead of 4kw.  Cost now is $2.84/kwh instead of $3/kwh.

Solar panel rentals are also available now.  See other thread I started.

I brought in Sunpower, Sunlux, and Telsa to get quotes for solar the past few weeks.  And since I need to get my roof repaired to get the solar installed, I can get a 30% credit for the roof repairs.  I'm going to be going with Sunlux since their pricing was the best and they are licensed roofers.  Pricing I got was $14k for a hair over 6,000KW or around $2.30/KW for 12 Panasonic solar panels. 

Happy to provide to refer anyone who is interested my Sunlux rep, just PM or email me.

$2.3 per watt is a good deal.  It wasn't that long ago that panels alone were $5/watt.

My 9900kwh system was $26,235 ($2.65/watt)
My 9900kwh system will be $18,365 after the tax incentive. 30% is about a $7,870 tax credit.  ($1.85/watt)

I wonder if the $2.30 USC is getting is before or after tax incentive.
If it's before, then akkord, cares, and I got screwed pretty badly, so I think it's prob. after because I'd like to think we shopped around pretty well.

12 Panasonic panels does not equal a 6kW system.  12 Panasonic panels will most likely generate 6000kWh per year of electricity.  You should double-check your quote...

My pre-tax cost is $14,235 for 12 Panasonic panels that will generate 6,143kWh per year of electricity so my after tax cost is $1.62/KW.  In the past year I used about 5,500kWh but I'll be putting in a spa next year so figured I'll get a little more than what I need now.

I wouldn't say that paying $2.65/KW is getting royally screwed.  One of my clients went with Sunlux having researched a half dozen companies and he recommended that get a quote from them.
