    Is $3.30 per watt a competitive price for 17kW straight net-metered ground mount in coastal Maine?

    Installing a ground mount on coastal Maine can be rather expensive. 17 kW is a big array, so you should be getting a break from having the crew stay around and maximize their effective time on site.  The installed cost also has to cover the costs of the distribution wiring from the array to your home, as well as the mounting frame and its foundation, or ground screws.  It sounds reasonable to me, without getting into the weeds..
