How much would one approximately pay for solar panels for a house?

The only way to get anywhere close to a fair estimate is to actually call up a solar installer in your area, and get a free quote. The price depends vastly on your energy usage, and your location. Two houses can be neighbors, and one can use 20 times as much electricity.

Solar hot water costs $ 4-6k, after which you may get some rebates or credits.

Solar electricity costs $ 6k and up, after which you may get rebates or credits. A typical system, if there is such a thing, is several times that size, and it is not unheard of to have a system 20 times that large.

    There are some websites out there that give you good calculators to approximate the costs. I have referenced them below.

    From what I have read it sounds like $ 9/kW.
    Remember you are not just having to install solar panels but inverters and batteries too.
