Initial cost with installation was about $16,000, less a $2000 state rebate and $8,000 federal income tax credit, which I was able to use. Maintenance costs have been zero. Saved electric costs plus carbon credit credit payments paid off the system cost in less than 4 years. So for the past 2-3 years I've had free electricity plus $1,000 - $1400 in carbon credit sales income. Expected overall life of the system approaches 20 years.
