        For a house installation it sounds in the ballpark to me, I know nothing about Farm installation. I would price based on materials and estimated labor. Also, are you installing the wiring? consider that a solar farm would have long runs of large gauge wire ($$$$)

          Here is something to think about. Once you have installed solar panels on the roof of a home how do you repair the roof when it comes time??

          Does the roof last longer?
          Do the panels just flip up or come off?
          Will they be easy to unplug?
