I had been considering it for years and my wife has been getting quotes. On the one hand it’s a 2 story house with tile roof 4.5:12 pitch which iw workable but not my happy place so having someone do it is appealing.... on the other hand I’m a licensed C-10 electrical contractor with over 30 years experience and I know the materials are about 1/2 he price of the quotes we are getting... but the engineering and paperwork for net metering and permitting are pretty intimidating. Well, I decided to do it about 2 months ago. I have been reading and took a coupple classes and found an engineering firm to do my drawings, structural and single line diagram. Just got those documents 2 days ago and began my permit application today. Hopefully I can have my authorization to operate within a few months.

How much do you think you'll end up paying, per watt, once it's all said and done?

I have a quote for LG 365 panels + Enphase MicroInverters for $2.82/watt. Seems to be a good deal from looking at other companies; curious to see how much better you do installing them yourself.
