The retail price of PV modules currently ranges from $1-$4/W. This, of course, depends upon the quantity you buy, what company you buy it from, and who does the installation.
The prices seem to be coming down on a regular basis, much as computers did for years.
Good research and development have not only made them cheaper, it has also made them more efficient.
Solar hot water and wind, on the other hand, are mature technologies.
Selling and installing solar hot water seems to be very profitable to the DFW companies which do it, maybe out of proportion to the costs they pay for materials and labor. Shop and compare carefully for solar hot water.
Wind is not really practical in North Central Texas, although it is more practical installed in the country than installed following city codes in DFW urban areas.
Walk out the door on a March day and you will find this hard to believe but….. Our problem is that we do not have consistent wind with enough velocity to make wind power practical.
