The main cost of a solar system is the panels, which will vary depending on your power and roof needs. Newer ones are expected to last 25 years in good conditions. Inverters tend to cost around $500 and usually need to be replaced in 5-10 years, but this will depend on the inverter type. Other costs include frames to hold the panels, wiring, etc, and are relatively small.
