Choose the right solar system

Roof Size

Your rooftop is the best place to do this because you must first capture the sun’s energy in order to use it. How many panels can be put in and how much power can be generated will depend on the size of your roof. Remember that not every part of your roof will be suitable for solar panels. For instance, any south-facing rooftop area won’t get enough sunlight to provide effective solar power. However, most houses have plenty of room.

Electricity Bills

When calculating your energy demands and the best system for your home, the specifics of your electricity bill can be quite instructive. On your bill, the majority of energy providers include a graph showing your electricity usage over a day, month, or year. The typical American household uses between 12 and 18 kWh (kilowatt hours) each day. For every 1kW of [installed solar power](), the majority of the major US cities produce 4kWh daily. You may determine the size of an acceptable solar power system by dividing the daily energy use of your home by the solar kilowatts per day.

For instance, if you divide 20 kWh per day by 4, the result is 5. This implies that a 5kW solar system would produce almost the same amount of electricity as you consume, leading to a significant decrease in “on the grid” consumption. A 3kW solar system may be large enough for couples or individuals to achieve significant bill savings.

The ideal solar power system for your home is specific to your circumstances; this is simply a general recommendation. The JNA Solar team can provide us with professional guidance, so giving us a call is your best course of action.
