Sunrun unveiled survey results today showing 97 percent of Americans overestimate the cost of installing a home solar system. While only three percent of respondents put the cost of solar at less than $1,000 upfront, 6 out of 10 Americans polled (59%) think it requires more than $20,000 in upfront cost.
In reality, installing a home solar system can cost as little as zero dollars upfront thanks to solar power service. If cost were not a factor, nearly 8 in 10 Americans say they would install solar. Four in 10 respondents would go solar within the next year if cost were not a factor.
