How Many Panels Do I Need For My Solar System?

The first thing someone asks when they begin to research the logistics of a solar system is “How many panels do I need?” There are 3 main factors to consider when figuring out how many solar panels your home or commercial space might need.

1. Current Cost?

On average, how much do you spend on your utility bills?

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the average North and South Carolina resident spends around 113 to 140 dollars in electricity per month.

That is an estimated1,042 to 1,042 kWh per monthly consumption.

2. Location?

The location of your home or commercial building is also a key factor in the number of solar panels that will be installed.

For North and South Carolina residents, an ideal home for great solar use should have a minimal amount of shade on the roofing.

Each property and house may need to be tailored to a certain level of customization.

3. How much energy do you want to conserve?

A large misconception with renewable energy is that it eliminates all costs.

Depending on if your household or commercial space goals with solar are to eliminate cost or become net-zero is also a large factor.

Regardless, it is always important to make an effort to conserve energy and resources!
