I guess it has a lot to do with:

The size of the roof
The orientation of your house
Whether you have clear line-of-sight of the sun from sun-up to sunset
The latitude your roof is at
The country you're in
Your building code
How much electricity you want to generate
The cost for panels in your area
Whether you contract it or build it yourself
Whether you want storage as well as generation

So, $28.50 plus tax.

myk3y-

As long as you are being specific, don't forget to include the type of roofing materials, government subsidies, and the $.50 off coupon from last weeks newspaper!

With the prescience of google I predict:

In terms of a ballpark figure, though, Michael Allen, owner of Above It All Roofing in Irvine, California, says the average cost of a new roof runs as low as $5,000 for a basic asphalt shingle roof — the most commonly used roofing material in America — to $25,000 and up for higher-end roof types.
