How Many Panels Do I Need?

The first step is to make a record of your electrical usage

This always depends on how much electricity you use in your home, and where your house is located. The average American household uses 600 Kilowatt-hours of electricity per month. However, an energy efficient home may use only half that.

In a sunny climate, a 2 kilowatt PV system can produce 300 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month. (To generate 2 kilowatts of power you need about 240 square feet of solar panels.) Therefore, the first step in planning a solar system is reducing electricity consumption. It is always more cost-effective to invest in energy efficiency than to install a larger PV system. Planning, mindfulness and some initial investment can result in a dramatic reduction in electricity use, without sacrificing the comforts to which we've become accustomed.
