How many solar panels do I need?
The amount of solar panels you need on your roof depends on a few factors. The first is your budget and the second is your energy usage. How much energy do you use? What size of the system can your budget support?
The answers to these questions will help determine the size of solar panels to get on your home. Remember, it depends on how many square feet of roof space is being used. With that said, here is a breakdown of how many solar panels you need for a 1, 2, or 3 bedrooms home.
You probably don’t need nearly as many solar panels as I did initially. The simpler the system the easier it will be to install. A 10Kw system in any system would be universal. With that being said, you still need to make sure you size it correctly. To determine how many solar panels you need for a bedroom, first find your average electricity usage during the winter. Then determine what size system you will need.
For example, my average electricity usage has been around 643 kWh per month during the winter. So based on this, I would want at least a 3kW system. With this size system, I can comfortably sleep comfortably at night without any extra power. If my average electricity usage were to increase to 743 kWh a month, I would want a 5kW system to work. With this larger system, I would need a 6kW system.
With this being said, past experience has shown that while it really is dependent on how much power consumers use, it is generally a safe bet to have two smaller systems close together on your roof just in case their power increases. On a recent vacation, I had a 6kW system installed on my second floor, but the system subsequently relocated to my garage under a 6kW solar panel and battery system.
