To list a few large variables that an AltaPro site assessment will address:
- Roof surface/location/condition
- Past yearly energy consumption/prediction
- Total project budget
- System goals (Net Zero, 50%, Over Production)
- Aesthetics
- Shading from trees/buildings.

Until all the blanks are filled in, AltaPro’s approximate cost for residential systems typically cost $3 a Watt for a turnkey system. Commercial scale systems are similar as well, provided they are on large open roofs for cost per Watt. The average Albertan can attain 100% energy offset for their residential energy bill with a 6KW system from a flush mount array design. This equates to an $18,000 cost. Typical sizes seen are 4Kw (+/- $12,000), 6Kw (+/- $18,000), 8Kw (+/- $24,000), &10Kw (+/- $29500). The site assessment would dial in what size is needed and the final cost.
