A solar power system is not a magical solution to all your power needs if you don’t understand & abide by the principles guiding its functionality.
In order to accurately size a solar system you need to first provide a few pieces of key information before you decide to spend on it:
- How much energy or electrical load do you consume in the home/office on a daily basis?
- What is the solar resource? How much sun and what is the strength of that sun in my location?
- What portion of the home’s energy needs do you want your solar power system to provide? (ie. 50%, 75%, 100%).?
- What quality/grade of components – panels, controllers, batteries, inverters, cabling et al – should I or can my budget accommodate.?
