How many panels do I need to install? How do you figure that out?

Depending on your annual electrical consumption, we will custom design a system comprised of as many panels as you need to produce your own clean, renewable electricity from the sun.  We take into account the direction your roof planes face, the pitch of your roof, and your zip code (for weather data).

Provided that you have enough roof space for this scenario, here is a sample calculation:

A 9,810 watt system consisting of thirty 327 watt panels may generate up to as much as 12,000 kWh of power annually for your home.  Very simply, 30 x 327 watts equals 9,810 watts of power.  Once we calculate the pitch of your roof and its orientation, we can accurately predict how much electricity this system will generate on an annual basis.  Your Solar Specialist is highly trained and will design a system exactly matching your roof.  Again, the amount of roof space you have — along with the roof pitch and orientation — are factors used in determining the best plan.

Should your home use 6,000 kWh or less annually, a smaller system will be designed for you.
